What are dental implants?
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots made of titanium. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. Instead of individual crowns, some patients may have attachments on their implant that support a removable denture.
What are dental implants made of?
Dental implants are typically made of titanium, a biocompatible material that is accepted by the body and serves as a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Your natural bone locks the implant into place by fusing, or attaching itself, to the implant.
Dental Implant Procedure:
An implant is surgically placed in an opening that your dentist makes in the jawbone. After the implant integrates (attaches) to your bone, approximately four months it acts as a new "root" for the crown that will replace your missing tooth. A crown (cap), which is made to look like a natural tooth, is attached to the implant and fills the space left in the mouth by the missing tooth.
What is bone grafting for dental implants?
Bone grafting procedure is an addition of prepackaged bone to your jawbone to create a more solid base for the implant.
It may take three to six months for the transplanted bone to grow enough new bone to support a dental implant.
