Getting a Dental Implant is a complex procedure. The insert can be used to retain a crown, bridge or even a denture. This is a great way of replacing missing teeth as implants are a much more reliable and permanent option and effectively aim to replace the ‘roots’ in your jaw.
The placing of a dental implant is an advanced procedure that will take a minimum of 3 months to complete. Having said this, it is more than worth the wait. Initially, the titanium insert is placed into the bone (under anaesthetic making it painless) then the bone is given time to heal and become ‘one’ with the metal insert. Following succesful healing, the implant can be ‘loaded’ with your choice of abutment – a crown, bridge or denture.
