A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. An implant doesn’t come loose like a denture can. Dental implants also benefit general oral health because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
How many dental implants do I need?
One or more dental implants can be used, depending on the size of the space.
How long does it take to get an dental implant?
The treatment takes between six to twelve months to complete.
Can everyone have dental implants?
Not everyone has the right jaw structure for this treatment, and you will need to be checked by your dentist to see if an implant is the right option for you.
