Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth.
A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed in the jawbone that replaces the root of the natural tooth and acts like the anchor for your dentist to place a crown to complete the prosthetic tooth. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary.
The implant must be allowed to heal for 3-6 months. During this healing time, temporary crowns may be able to be placed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.
