Dental implants are a popular option when it comes to restoring a missing or damaged tooth. Dental implants offer a stable and permanent solution to help you eat, talk, and live normally.
Dental implants appear just like a regular tooth would. They are durable and functional, just like normal teeth. The dental implant process begins with the dentist surgically placing an implant post into your jawbone. The longest part of the implant process is the healing period. The jaw bone can take a few months to fully heal around the post. During this time, your dentist may recommend a diet of softer foods to help your mouth heal correctly. Once your jaw has healed, your dentist will cover the post with a replacement tooth and your smile will be complete.
