The way dental implants are placed depends on the patient,
the type of implant and the tooth being replaced.Some
implants can be fully placed in one day.Most Implants
Involved two or three steps.First ,the implants is placed
into the jaw and the gum is secured over the implant.
Over the next three to six months the implant will fuse
with the jaw bone. Once the implant and bone have
bonded together , the dentist or specialist may attach
and extension ,called an abutment.to the implant .In
some cases ,the implant and abutment are a single unit
placed during the initial surgery.In Others , a second
surgery may be needed to attach the abutment to the
replacement teeth.Once healed ,the implant and
abutment act as the foundation for new tooth .In
the final step,the dentist or specialist makes a crown
in the right size,shape and color to match your natural
teeth. The crown is attached to the implant post.
Dental implants provide a good alternative for the
natural tooth when it must be extracted. Candidates
for implants should have good general and oral health,
adequate bone support in the jaw and healthy gum
tissues.Chronic illnesses,such as diabetes or leukemia,
may interfere with healing after surgery and prevent
successful placement can include smoking, poor bone
quality, long term use of bisphosphonate medications,
and low estrogen levels.

like your natural tooth,dental implants are a viable
alternative to help you maintain a beautiful smile.
