An implant is a tiny screw made of titanium and other materials which is drilled in the bone where the tooth’s root would normally be. They are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth. It is a very popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. Implants are designed to blend in with your other teeth and an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile.
It takes about an average of three months for the implant to fully integrate with the bone of your jaw. The initial implant takes around 45 minutes and is usually done under local anesthetic. When the implant is fully integrated to the bone, an abutment and a post is attached to it. A crown can be placed over the post to replace the missing tooth. A denture can also be stabilized with implant.
