Once embedded, dental implants generally take between 2-6 months to fuse completely to the bone. Once this process has been completed, your restorative tooth may be placed. Unlike dentures, which are unstable, dental implants are a long-term, dependable means to replacing missing teeth.
Dental Implants are one of dentistry’s longest, more reliable forms of treatment used to replace teeth that have been lost or teeth with damaged roots. These durable mounts are shaped like that of a screw and securely embedded into your bone, just as your natural teeth roots are, and then attached to the replacement tooth, bridge, or denture. Implanted by a team of dental professionals, your new implant will look, feel, and function just as natural teeth do.
