How do dental implants work?
Benefits of dental implants
- Will not come loose, as dentures or bridges can
- Prevent or slow down bone loss
- Are easier to clean and maintain than other tooth replacement solutions
To place the implants, a small incision will be made in the gum line over the site of the missing tooth or teeth (one implant can support more than one prosthetic). Your dentist will prepare the underlying bone, then insert the implant into place. The gum tissue will then be stitched closed over the implant, and the site will be left for approximately four months. During this time, the implant will fuse into the bone through a process called Osseo integration. At the end of this period, once your dentist has ensured that the implant is stable enough, the artificial tooth/teeth will be fixed to it. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can be expected to last a lifetime.
