Dental Implant Restoration
Dental implants are a great way to restore the original look and function of a tooth that has been lost. Implants mimic natural teeth in the way they’re actually implanted and fused to the jawbone in much the same way the original roots of your teeth were.
What to Expect When Getting Dental Implants
The process for receiving an implant usually happens in two parts. The implant or artificial root is placed into the bone of the jaw, and the implant is then allowed to heal and fuse to the bone. This process often takes several months. In the meantime, a crown is molded to the exact specifications of the original tooth.
Once the implant has healed, the crown is installed on top of the implant. This creates a permanent, natural-looking tooth replacement that is actually fused into the jaw bone itself, just as the original tooth had been. Dental implants provide patients with a durable, natural-feeling solution to replacing a missing tooth.
