A dental implant is a small titanium screw embedded into the jaw bone. Your dentist will then fix an artificial tooth to the top of the screw. Dental implants look, feel and function just like a natural tooth.

Dental implants have become the preferred method of replacing one or more Missing teeth. They have even become a more popular alternative to Bridge work, as dental implants typically last a lot longer.

At Absolute Dental, we will thoroughly assess your oral health to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Your teeth and gums must be in good health, and your dentist will also need to determine whether you have the right amount of bone density in your jaw to support an implant.

You may require a bone graft before you can have dental implant surgery if the bone in your jaw is not dense enough. Your dentist can discuss your options after you have undergone the initial assessment, which will include x-rays.

Traditional dental implant surgery may take several months to complete. Once your dentist has implanted a titanium screw into your jaw, it will need time to heal and anchor in place as it fuses with the surrounding bone.

The next stage is to attach a special cap on to the implant to protect it during the healing process. Once the implant is secure, your dentist can fit your prosthetic tooth, completing the process.

Dental implants look so natural that they are virtually impossible to tell apart from your real teeth. You need to take care of dental implants by keeping up a good oral hygiene routine. Remember to schedule regular dental check-ups.

Your implants can last upwards of 20 years with the proper care.
