Dental implants are made of a small implant, connector post, and an aesthetically pleasing crown that are designed to increase the cosmetic appeal of your smile. They also have the ability to restore your tooth’s stability, strength, and health. However, the implant procedure takes place over the course of several months. After the implant post and anchor have been surgically placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth, the titanium will fuse with the bone to create a secure foundation, which could take anywhere from six to twelve weeks. Once the mouth has healed and the bone has fused to the implant, an implant restoration (crown, bridge, or denture) will be precisely placed for optimal cosmetic and functional results.
