What Are Dental Implants?

Implant-supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants are tiny titanium posts are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts that protrude through the gums are then attached to the implant. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.

What Is The Implant Process?

There are two surgical procedures for the placement of dental implants. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants beneath the surface of the gums are gradually bonding with the jawbone. You should able to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet during this time. The second phase starts with uncovering the implants and attaching small posts that protrude the gums that will act as anchors for the artificial teeth. When the artificial teeth are placed, these posts will not be seen. The entire procedure takes six to eight months. Most patients experience minimal disruption in their daily life.
