A dental implant is a small titanium screw that integrates perfectly into your gum tissue, just where the root of your tooth would sit. Here’s how it works:
The screw will be surgically placed directly into your jaw by your dentist. Its shape and material is optimal for close contact and ultimately fusion with bone, providing maximum stability later on.
There will be some healing time. The screw will slowly mesh with the bone, becoming a natural component of your jaw. After integration of the implant with the bone an impression is taken and the final restoration of abutment and crown constructed so that it can be fitted, giving a result that will blend in to your smile.
Your implant will look and feel exactly like a normal tooth: no one will ever know, and even you might forget!
You will still be able to bite and chew normally, and the bone in your jaw will remain intact over time.
