What Are Dental Implants?Tooth loss is a problem that can be caused by injury or periodontal diseases. The common treatment was dentures and bridges. The improvement of technology has brought us dental implants to replace lost teeth. We are going to get into detail about dental implants.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are replacements for lost teeth. The teeth are replaced from the root to the crown. They can either be temporary or mostly permanent replacements. Dental implant processes require both the patient and dentist to work together for successful treatment. There is development of dental treatment for the patient. The patient is then booked by a surgeon who has specialized in dental implants. The root which is made out of titanium is drilled into the jaw. The jawbone takes from 2-3 months to heal with the root embedded permanently. Once it has healed, the connector is added so that the new tooth can be added. The new tooth is designed to resemble the rest of the teeth.
