A DENTAL IMPLANT is an artificial tooth root. An implant is made out of titanium andI is inserted into the jawbone by a dental surgeon while the patient is under local and/or general anesthesia.
After several months of healing the body grows new bone directly to the surface of the implant. The procedure is considered by most patients to be quick and painless.
You will never have to worry about recurrent decay or the need for a root canal with an implant. The overall success rate has been very predictable at over 97 %.
After several months of healing the body grows new bone directly to the surface of the implant. Implant surfaces can and do vary. Some are etched,
grooved or plasma-sprayed, and others are coated with bone accelerant agents. Most implants are tapered and resemble a root form. The most commonly used type of implant is an endosteal (in the bone) fixture.
