What are Dental implants?
Dental implants are one way of replacing missing teeth. The best way to think of a dental implant is as a replacement root. The dental implant is gently inserted into the area where the exisitng root was. After a period of osseointegration ( term given to describe the attachment of the bone to the dental implant) The new implant can act as a support to crowns, bridges or as an attachment to secure a denture.
Dental implant treatment normally has two stages. First, the implant is gently threaded in the exisitng bone of the jaw. Then, when osseointegration has occured, typically 3-4 months, replacement teeth are attached to the implant. In some situations it is possible for temporary teeth to be attached to an implant at the time of fitting.
