Dental implants are metal posts that are attached to your jawbone to replace the roots of your tooth. These implants are usually titanium which integrate with your tooth bone over time. As a result, the implant is sturdy and capable of holding your artificial teeth in place.
A dental implant will keep your bone healthy and strong if there are missing teeth as that can result in bone loss in the jawbone. Implants are an effective and durable choice that is available for you when you consider options to replace your teeth.

Procedures to have dental implants completed can be done within one appointment. However, the affected area will require some time for it to heal.
Once the implant has been placed securely, the titanium post and your jawbone will eventually bond with each other to create a sturdy support for your artificial tooth.
Implants can take five to six months to heal properly which is then followed by the attachment of your artificial tooth. These implants don’t require special treatment and can last for decades.
