What Are Dental Implants?

  • Dental implants are tooth roots to replace missing teeth.
  • These provide a solid foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth.
  • A dental implant is placed into the socket in the jawbone of the missing tooth.
  • The implant gets fixed well in the jaw as the bone around it heals and regenerates.
  • The average time for the jawbone to heal and grow around the implant can be six to 12 weeks.
  • Once the implant gets well embedded into the jawbone, an abutment is attached to it so that a dental crown or a cap can be placed over it.
  • Some of the popular brands of dental implants are BioHorizons, Straumann, Nobel Biocare, Zimmer Biomet, and MegaGen.
