Dental implants serve as artificial roots in the jaw to support the missing tooth structure. Dental implants are titanium root like structures which are fixed into the bones of the jaw. Dental implants can be used in a variety of situations, whether you need to replace a single missing tooth or many teeth. They can even be used to replace a full denture. Dental implants restore form, function and esthetics of the lost tooth structure. The dental implants are placed in the bone under local anesthesia or conscious sedation. A healing period of 3-6 months is required for the dental implants to integrate with the bone. After the healing period, the artificial teeth are fabricated and can be fixed on to the dental implant. The number of visits for the implant treatment can vary from 3-5 visits depending on the extent of the treatment. With the recent advances in this field we offer a predictable and time tested treatment option for missing teeth.
