Dental Implants

Mayans were the oldest and earliest known examples of using implants . Archaeologists discovered a mandible that had three tooth shaped pieces of shell in the tooth sockets of three missing incisor teeth.

Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth . They are the most effective way to replace teeth long-term to restore your smile.

Implants are made of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body . They are essentially posts that are surgically places in the upper or lower haw where they function as anchors for replacement teeth .

 

There are normally 3 steps in this process :

1. The dentist surgically implants the titanium screw in your jaw bone.

2. The bone around the implant needs to heal in a process called osseointegration . Osseointigration means ” combines with bone” . This could take a few months to heal.

3. This is the last step in an implant procedure where they restore the tooth with a customized crown made for you . If you are replacing more than one tooth custom made bridges or dentures will be made to fit your mouth .
