What Exactly are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are replacement teeth attached to your jaw, for just a single tooth or a full arch of teeth. A single dental implant involves securing an implant, like a screw, into your jawbone where a tooth is missing. This implant is left to settle for four to six months, with a temporary crown affixed, so that it fuses with your bone securely. Once the implant is secure, an abutment and permanent crown are fitted, and your procedure is complete.

Procedures like full mouth restorations with multiple implants are designed to replace a full arch of teeth without having to place an implant for every individual tooth. These involve the insertion of four, six or eight implants into the jawbone, onto which a full permanent set of teeth are attached. If you need multiple teeth replaced, these kinds of restorations can often be cheaper and faster than having many individual dental implants.
