What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium rods that are placed into the jawbone during oral surgery. They can be restored in a variety of ways, with crowns, bridges, or dentures. These versatile restorations are biocompatible with the body and provide a number of benefits, which make them the ultimate replacement option for most patients seeking permanent repair.
What is the process of obtaining dental implants?
The process starts with a consultation appointment. During this time, x-rays may be taken to check the jawbone. There must be sufficient bone present for the treatment to be successful. Patients can also ask about alternatives such as bridges and dentures, which can also be used in tooth replacement. If patients are good candidates for dental implants, and choose to move forward with treatment, a surgical appointment is made. This is the point at which the implant is placed into the bone of the jaw. Several weeks are needed for healing, during which osseointegration occurs. This is the growth of the bone to hold the implant in place. Then the implants are restored.
