What is involved in having a dental implant?
Dental implant is screw-shaped titanium metal used to replace a missing tooth. It is an artificial tooth that acts similar to your natural tooth. Dental implant procedure involves three steps.
- In the initial stage, the implant screw is placed surgically into your jawbone.
- After a suitable healing time, a simple second stage procedure is complete to expose the buried implant. But the healing time varies from each person.
- Finally, the artificial tooth or the crown is made and screwed or cemented to your implant.
