Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Dental Implants provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable prosthesis (replacement teeth) that are made to match your natural teeth. They are manufactured from biologically neutral pure Titanium that is accepted by the human body and these implants fuse with the jawbone to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement
Benefits of Dental Implants
Is dental implant surgery painful?
No. An effective local anesthetic is used during the surgery so that you do not have any discomfort during the placement of the implants. The mild discomfort you might experience after surgery can be controlled with medications.
How long does treatment take?
Generally, the treatment is carried out in three (3) stages over a period of three to six months.
Stage 1: The implant fixture is inserted into the jawbone. A healing period of three to six months is allowed for the fixture to completely fuse or “integrate” with the jawbone before proceeding to stage 2.
Stage 2: The top of the implant fixture is re-exposed and the abutment is fitted over the fixture. A period of two to three weeks is allowed for the gums to heal around the abutment before proceeding to stage 3.
Stage 3: Your restorative dentist fabricates and fits the artificial tooth or denture over the abutment.
