How Implants Work
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. The implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone and then bonds with the natural bone to serve as an anchor for a tooth replacement.
Dental implants, together with a tooth replacement, look and feel like natural teeth.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth and can address a number of oral health issues, including:
- Preventing surrounding teeth from shifting
- Resolving jaw joint pain or bite issues
- Improving chewing, speech and digestion
- Restoring aesthetics and facial tissues
Straumann® Dental Implants
At West Market Dental, we use the trusted Straumann dental implant system. Straumann is a leading worldwide dental implant provider, and an excellent choice for your oral health.
The Implant Procedure
The dental implant procedure requires two pieces: a titanium screw and a tooth replacement such as crown, bridge or denture.
First, your dentist will surgically place the titanium screw into your jaw bone beneath the gum tissue. The gum tissue is then stitched back into place. As the tissue heals, the implant will bond with the bone and attach to the gum.
Once the healing is complete, usually 3 to 6 months after the surgery, patients return to our office to finish the procedure.
At this appointment, your dentist will attach a tooth replacement to the implant to create the appearance and function of a natural tooth.
