Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. They are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile.
In fact, the development and use of implants is one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past 40 years. Dental implants are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. They are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth.

 

 

 

Implant treatment is generally divided in three steps:

  1. Surgical placement of the implant screw
    • Wait few months for the implant to adhere to the bone
  2. Uncovering the implant
    • Attach a post to the implant
    • take an impression for the crown
  3. Cementation of the crown to the implant post
