Dental implants are the best and most natural fitting way to restore missing teeth permanently. Implants can replace a single tooth are many teeth anywhere in the mouth.
Depending on which teeth are missing, your implant restoration may require a crown, dental bridge, partial denture, or complete denture.
All Implants have three phases:
Phase I: the titanium dental post is surgically placed in the jaw bone at the site of the missing tooth. The implant will need approximately four to six months to integrate with the bone.
Phase II: the implant is exposed. A temporary crown and abutment are placed. This process takes approximately four to six weeks to properly heal.
Phase III: Depending on single or multiple implants, the crown, dental bridge, partial denture, or complete denture is placed.
Dental implants are far superior to other alternative procedures to replace missing teeth because of the lasting longevity, complete function, and lower maintenance. Essentially, a dental implant is designed to look, function, and feel like your natural teeth and can last a lifetime.
