Teeth lost due to injury, disease, or infection can make speaking and eating difficult. Furthermore, the individual missing teeth, may feel self-conscious and uncomfortable with his/her appearance. Dental implants are the most durable way of replacing missing teeth. An implant can successfully replace a single tooth or all of your natural teeth.
The dental implant procedure involves three phases. During the first phase, the titanium implant is placed into your jawbone. This is followed by the second phase, a period of healing, known as osseointegration, that lasts for several months. The third and final phase involved placement of a new crown that is attached to the titanium implant. The new tooth looks and functions just as your natural healthy teeth.
