If you are looking for a procedure to replace a tooth or teeth, getting dental implants is a good option. A dental implant is a surgical installation that fuses with the jaw or skull bone to support a prosthesis. Implant surgery involves several steps. The different steps require time to heal before the next step. The entire treatment process can take from five months to over a year. Here is the process entailed in getting dental implants.
Losing a tooth can happen for any number of reasons, from trauma to oral disease. The loss of a tooth or several teeth can cause different problems. Apart from affecting your appearance, it can also cause functional problems, affecting speech and even the ability to chew. Fortunately, there are options to restore your smile and ability to chew with ease.
