What is a dental implant

Reset Decrease Increase
A dental implant is used to replace missing teeth. The design of a dental implant is based on the design of a natural tooth. A natural tooth is one piece commonly described as having two main parts. One part is the crown that sits above the gums. The second part is the root that sits securely in your jawbone.

A dental implant treatment may involve several pieces. However it can also may be described as having two main parts. One part is a restoration that is custom fabricated to match the shape of a natural tooth crown. The second part is the implant that replaces the function of the natural tooth root.

Implants are made of titanium or titanium alloy. Unlike most materials our body normally accepts titanium without infection
The first phase of implant treatment involves creating an opening in the jaw bone in preparation of the implant.
The implant is the placed, followed by a healing cover.

Depending on the implant system, the gums may be sutured and a temporary denture placed.
The site immediately begins to heal. A process known as osseointegration takes place, where bone molecules begin to attach themselves to the titanium surrounding the implant.

It usually takes between 2 to 4 months for the bone to securely bond to the entire implant surface.
The final phase involves the custom restorations being fitted and securely placed.
