MISSING TEETH CAN BE distressing. They can affect your self esteem and overall health. Dental implants are an excellent way to replace your teeth and enjoy your smile again.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
The process of dental implants is fairly simple. There are three basic steps:
- We’ll make a space for the dental implant first. Any trace of the old tooth is removed and the area is prepped for the implant. Next, we’ll place a post in the gum where the tooth was. Over the next few months, your mouth will heal around the implant. The titanium rod actually fuses with your jaw bone.
- Once the post is in, we’ll put an abutment in place. The abutment connects to the rod and holds the crown that will go on top.
- Finally, the prosthetic teeth–which have been milled, designed, and colored specifically to suit your mouth–will be attached to the abutment, completing the implant process.
