There are many different causes of tooth loss – decay, gum disease, trauma, and congenital anomalies. Although there are a variety of options to fill gaps left by missing teeth, dental implants, also known as tooth implants, are an excellent alternative for those with strong gums, sufficient bones, and otherwise healthy mouths.
During the three-stage dental implants procedure, a specialist extracts any diseased or injured teeth; next, he carefully inserts titanium dental implant posts into jaw, leaving them to fuse to the bone for several months. The patient is then fitted with temporary artificial teeth to hide gaps during the wait period. In the second stage of tooth implants, the specialist screws an abutment – to which a permanent crown will be attached in the third stage–into the dental implants post. After the crown is attached, the dental implants procedure is complete.
