A dental implant is a cylindrical screw-like structure made out of titanium metal that is placed into your jaw bone and acts as a tooth root. An artificial tooth is permanently secured onto this artificial root., They look and feel similar to natural teeth. Proper care can be taken by the same home care techniques including brushing, flossing, as well as regularly scheduled dental visits.
The implant procedure is done in two stages:
The placement stage refers to the placement of the surgical titanium cylindrical post into your jaw that will act as a tooth root and an artificial tooth is placed on it.
X-ray images and oral examination is done by the dentist to determine if you have the right amount of existing bone to support dental implants. You may require special X-ray to see if it is an option for you.
