What Is Dental Implant?

A dental implant can be used to replace one, or several missing teeth. A dental implant is comprised of three parts–the dental implant, the abundant, and the prothetic. The dental implant is made from premium grade titanium, which is surgically implanted into the jaw bone. The dental implant is designed to mimic the natural tooth root. Once the dental implant fuses with the jaw bone, a dental crown, dental bridge or dentures is attached.

The Dental Implant Process

Placing The Dental Implant: The dental implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone. Generally the prosthetic is placed after the dental implant fuses into the jaw bone. The healing process can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months.

Placing the Prosthetic: Once the dental implant fuses with the jaw bone, impressions of the teeth are taken (including the portion with the dental implant) to create a custom-designed prosthetic. Your final prosthetic will be color matched, shaped, and designed to create a natural looking, comfortable solution for missing teeth. Once your final prosthetic is fabricated, one of our dentists will carefully attach it to the dental implant and abundant.

Dental implants can be an ideal solution to replace missing teeth. To care for your dental implants, you should follow a healthy oral hygiene routine and schedule biannual visits to Davis Family Dental Care in Bedford, TX. With proper care and maintenance, your dental implants can last many years and offer a beautiful solution for missing teeth.
