WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS ?

Dental implants are metal devices that are surgically inserted into the jawbone in order to replace one or more missing teeth. Normally, dental implants support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, removable dentures but sometimes they may act as an orthodontic anchor (in order to align and straighten teeth).

First, a surgical procedure is required to place the dental implant inside the jawbone. The basis for modern dental implants is a biologic process called osseointegration where materials, such as titanium, form an intimate bond to bone. A variable amount of healing time is required for osseointegration (3 to 6 months).
After the healing time, an abutment is attached to the implant. The abutment will hold the dental prosthesis (crown, bridge, removable denture).
