Dental Implants: A Permanent Solution to Your Concern on Missing Teeth

A dental implant is a small metal post which is secured into your jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. Your dentist can fit an implant while you are under an anaesthetic, so you can undergo this procedure without feeling any pain or discomfort. Your dentist will use a dental drill to place the implant into your jawbone before stitching your gum back over the implant area. Once the implant has been fitted, it will be left to integrate with your jawbone. The procedure to fit an implant does not take too long, but afterwards you must wait for your implant to fuse to your jawbone. This process usually takes three to six months. During this time, you will need to avoid placing any stress or exerting any pressure upon your dental implants.
