Dental implants are manufactured replacements for tooth roots. If you have lost one or more of your permanent teeth, dental implants offer a solution. Dental implants are made in dental labs from one of the strongest materials known to man – titanium – as well as other safe materials. The implant acts in place of your natural tooth root to anchor the replacement tooth. One of the best features of dental implants is that they are virtually undetectable by others. Since they naturally blend in with the look of your other teeth, no one else need know that you have dental implants.
The dental implant procedure involves surgery, when the implant is placed into the jawbone. Recovery time is needed after this surgery to allow time for the implant to fully secure itself into the jawbone. After that, you’ll return to the office to be fitted with the replacement tooth.
