If you have lost a tooth or damaged a tooth beyond repair, dental implants may be required to restore functionality to your mouth. Dental Implants look and feel like your natural teeth, making it difficult for people around you to notice that you are missing a tooth.
Implants are essentially artificial tooth roots that are made of surgical-grade titanium alloys that are implanted into your jaw bone to support a dental crown or dentures. The process for installing dental implants requires multiple surgeries over the course of six months. The break between surgeries is required to allow the implant to bond to the jawbone through a process called osseointegration.
