There are several options available to replace missing teeth. Dental implants offer the advantage of better stability than dentures or bridges. They are small metal posts that are inserted directly into the jawbone and support a dental prosthetic (usually a dental crown). They do not depend on the natural teeth as bridges do and allow patients to use them with more confidence than other teeth replacement options and in greater comfort.
An implant can be used to replace one or more teeth. Before getting dental implants placed, your dentist will have to make sure that you have sufficient bone structure to support them as well as healthy gums.
The process for getting dental implants takes several months. A small incision will be made on the site of the missing tooth. The bone is prepared for the implant, which is then screwed into place. One implant can support multiple dental prosthetics. The gum tissue is then stitched closed over the implant. It is left for approximately four months to allow the bone time to completely fuse around it through a process called osseointegration. Temporary crowns can be used during this time. Once the implant has completely fused into the bone, the artificial tooth/teeth will be attached to it.
