Dental Implants Information

Dental implants are ideal to replace missing teeth.

If you have dentures, bridges, broken or damaged teeth dental implants could be a great investment for your smile.

Time frames needed to complete the dental implant procedure have a few contributing factors. One such factor is state of the jawbone. If the doctor needs more jawbone to work with, bone grafting may be required. This process must be completed and healed before the dental implant can be installed.

Osseointegration is a process where a titanium post is screwed into the jawbone. This must be left for 3-6 months so that the bone can fuse around it. A plate style implant may be used between the gum and the jawbone if the bone integrity is not ideal.
