Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with metal, screwlike posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones. Dental implant surgery can offer a welcome alternative to dentures or bridgework that doesn’t fit well and can offer an option when a lack of natural teeth roots don’t allow building denture or bridgework tooth replacements.
How dental implant surgery is performed depends on the type of implant and the condition of your jawbone. Dental implant surgery may involve several procedures. The major benefit of implants is solid support for your new teeth — a process that requires the bone to heal tightly around the implant. Because this bone healing requires time, the process can take many months.
An implant once placed will merge with your jawbone, forming a solid basis for a dental restoration such as a crown, bridge or prosthesis. An implant not only fuses with your bone like a root, but it also promotes and protects the integrity of your bones. A Dental implant can be used to replace a single tooth while multiple implants can support a bridge or even fasten dentures to replace several lost teeth. Dental implants can last a lifetime if properly cared for. For this reason, and because of its numerous advantages, dental implants are often regarded as the best option for permanently replacing lost teeth.
