Dental implants offer a stable and permanent solution when it comes to replacing your missing teeth. Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. Your dentist can shape and color the implant to match perfectly to the surrounding teeth, so your smile can be complete.
The process of installing the dental implant begins with your dentist surgically placing an implant post into your jawbone. Once your jawbone has healed around the implant, your dentist will then place your replacement tooth over the post.
During the healing process, your dentist may advise you to eat softer foods so your jaw can heal properly. The healing process can take a few weeks to heal fully. During this time, your bone grows around the implant and makes it very strong. This will give your artificial tooth the support it needs to keep it in place.
