Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth.
The entire implant process is performed over the course of a several months. The first part of the process is to place the implant itself into the jaw bone. Multiple implants can be placed at one time if necessary.
The implant takes 3-6 months to heal. During this healing phase there are several temporary tooth options to be placed so you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.
After the implant has healed a post is placed and the new crown or bridge is attached. Your smile will look just like it used to and your ability to properly chew is restored.
