What is a dental implant?

Dental implant is considered the standard of care for replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is a surgical fixture that is placed in the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone to replace the root of a missing tooth.

When do you need a dental implant?

Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth or all teeth and preserve bone structure and provide more comfort than removable dentures. The purpose of tooth replacement is to restore the function of the tooth, as well as aesthetic appearance and quality of life.

# Types of dental implant restorations

Dental implants are various combinations of prosthetics on dental implants for each type of dental implant restoration

# Conventional (Two Stage) Dental Implants

The two-step procedure is the most widely used. The implant is surgically placed in the jawbone so that it remains with the bone under the gum. The gingival tissue is then closed with sutures to protect the implant from the forces that may affect it, and the surrounding bone heals and fuses to the implant. After the healing period (2-6 months), a second (small) operation is performed to expose the implant to anchor the restoration.

# Same day implants (Temporary Load Dental Implants)

Temporary Load Dental Implants, also called "same day implants or temporary function implant", allow a temporary tooth (crown) to be placed during the same appointment as implant placement. As the dental implant fuses with your natural bone and the long-term custom crown is placed in about three to six months, you can go on with your life and work
