Dental implant placement is a highly effective and durable solution for replacing missing teeth. It involves the surgical placement of a titanium implant post into the jawbone, which acts as a secure foundation for a dental crown, bridge, or denture.
The process begins with a comprehensive examination and evaluation to determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. During the implant placement procedure, the oral surgeon carefully inserts the implant post into the jawbone. Over time, the implant integrates with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration, providing stability and strength.
Once the implant has fully fused with the jawbone, an abutment is attached to the post, which serves as a connection point for the final restoration. A custom-made dental crown, bridge, or denture is then affixed to the abutment, completing the restoration and restoring your smile’s function and appearance.
