A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth designed to replace a natural tooth that has fallen out or been removed from the jaw. This prosthetic serves as a safe alternative to bridges and dentures that uses artificial roots instead of existing teeth to support the new fixture.
Unlike bridges and traditional dentures, implants are surgically inserted into your jawbone, providing exceptional support and a strong, seamless smile. Each prosthetic is anchored by a strong, titanium implant that is placed into the jawbone – this is then attached via an abutment to a prosthetic crown, resulting in a semi-permanent fixture. The procedure to insert this implant requires a 3-6 month treatment period if you have adequate bone to support your implant. If your bone is too soft, you will require a bone graft, which adds another two to three months to the treatment period.
Anyone with any type of tooth loss can benefit from implant placement, as there are several implant placement options to choose from:
