Dental Implant Surgery: What To Expect
When it comes to tooth replacement options, dental implants are the only solution that is permanent. These implants are screw-like items, made from titanium, that are placed into the jawbone by a dental professional. They serve as both tooth roots and feature dental crowns that feel, appear, and function like your natural teeth. The dental implant surgery is a procedure that occurs in multiple stages in an outpatient setting. Overall, it takes roughly six months to complete, depending on several factors like whether tooth extraction is needed, the number of teeth that need to be replaced, and your overall oral health.
