Missing teeth make it difficult to eat or even smile with confidence. Dental implants have become the dental application of choice as they are safe and a more affordable solution in replacing teeth.
The implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jawbone during a relatively noninvasive, simple procedure. Over time, the titanium will bond with the bone which creates a strong and stable anchor for replacement teeth.
It is usually six months for the titanium and bone to unite completely. During the healing time, a unique bridge or denture is placed. When the post has become secure, the new tooth, bridge or denture is attached.
The procedure for implants only requires a day or two to recuperate and most people’s experience is nearly pain free.
