What to Expect During a Dental Implant Procedure
You may be considering having dental implants to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are very popular, and have given many people the great smiles they have wanted.
· Dental implants can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth, and can make dentures secure so they don’t slip.
- The implant is usually made of titanium and will last a lifetime.
· The screw-like parts are placed into the jaw bone and are meant to imitate the root of the tooth. The crown is colour-matched to your natural teeth.
· Most patients report that they were much more comfortable after the procedure than they had anticipated.
The surgery is done in the dental office with local anesthesia but can also be done with I.V.
