What is a dental implant and when would I need one?
Missing teeth can cause both aesthetic and functional problems in the mouth. Modern dentistry offers a strong, permanent way to correct the problem of missing teeth with dental implants. Implants are small titanium posts placed into the jaw to provide a foundation for replacement teeth. Used instead of conventional crowns and dentures, dental implant technology can help preserve jaw bone strength while providing more comfort and a natural-looking smile.
Usually, the dental implant process has three steps:
- The implant is surgically implanted into the jaw.
- Over a period of time the jaw bone heals painlessly around the implant to hold it strongly in place.
- A customized tooth, designed with the right size, shape and color to blend in with other teeth, is placed on the implant.
