However, the basic process for receiving implants is quite similar for any application.
First, a titanium screw called the implant post is surgically inserted into the jawbone. This is designed to replace the missing root structure, and is the reason why implant restorations are so sturdy. A period of a few months is then required for the site to heal and for the bone to bond with the implant. This process is called osseointegration.
After the implant has been fully integrated into the jaw, our dentist will place the final implant restoration. Depending on your individual situation, this can be a single crown, a fixed dental bridge, or a removable denture or partial. Each is designed to match your surrounding teeth and fit comfortably.
Replacing missing or damaged teeth is a key step toward restoring your oral health and appearance. Dental implants are often recommended for this since they look and function most like your natural teeth compared with other restorations. They can also last a lifetime if properly cared for.
