But what is dental implant surgery? The implants are made of two parts – the titanium insert, which is put through the jaw bone and holds the implant in place, which is followed by a dental crown. Read more.
The simple process of dental implants
The implant functions and looks the same as a natural tooth. Having a dental implant is the most effective solution for missing teeth, as well as teeth that are damaged beyond repair, World Dental website reported.
But how is the surgery treatment carried out? Initially, the damaged tooth will be extracted and the jaw bone will be prepared for the procedure. Care is required before the placement of the implant. Click here.
The titanium screw will then be inserted in the bone through a hole drilled by the dentist. About two to three months will be necessary for everything to heal completely.
The dentist will then check if the titanium implant has fused well with the bone and is able to support the implant. Then the dental crown is attached. All of this procedure is comfortable and our dentists will ensure you aren’t in pain at any time. See: Comfortable Treatment.

However, if the dental implant is not properly inserted it can cause problems or even fall out, so finding a skilled professional to carry out the procedure is essential. View our successes.
