The Process of a Dental Implant
As mentioned above, dental implants are man-made tooth roots. These tooth roots are surgically placed into your jawbone. After this, it takes up to 6 months for the implant to fuse with the jawbone through a process known as “Osseo integration”. This process results in a very strong bond that mimics real teeth. Once fully in place, an abutment is placed on top, followed by a dental crown for a completely new tooth that you would never guess is man-made.
