What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a base which when implanted into the jawbone acts as an artificial root. When a dental procedure like a crown, bridge or dentures is carried out missing teeth can be replaced.
A dental implant is made from a strong, non-reactive, bio-compatible substance. It is submerged in the jaw and then the site is allowed to heal. When it is stable in the gum a small metal post can then be used to anchor an artificial tooth.
The material of the jawbone assimilates the implant and a very strong and durable bond is formed. This process is known as osseointegration and can take several months.
