Dental implants also stimulate the bone in the jaw, preventing bone loss that can occur when a tooth is lost. The implants will be permanently placed into the jawbone during a minor in-office procedure.
What Is The Process For Getting Dental Implants?
First, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth so a custom crown can be made for you. Then, your dentist will make an incision in your gum where the implant will be placed. The dental implant is a post made of titanium that will be surgically placed in your mouth.
Once it's in place, your jawbone will grow around the and fuse with the post to create a strong and sturdy foundation for your new tooth. Once your jaw has grown around your post and fused with it, the abutment will be attached to your implant and serve as a connector for the crown to be made. Your dentist will make a mold of your abutment to create your custom crown. When the crown is completed, it will be placed on the implant to complete your new smile!
Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or periodontist. For the best dental care, visit Dr. Be Smiles at 4511 N Midkiff Rd, Suite E-15, Midland, TX 79705, or call (432) 520-4867.
