Are you insecure about your missing tooth or teeth? If so, dental implants might be right for you. Dental implants offer a great solution when it comes to restoring your smile. Many people find dental implants secure, stable, and indistinguishable from natural teeth. They even assist with eating and speaking, and they improve your self-esteem.

There are generally three phases of receiving an implant. They include:

1. Inserting the implant: The dentist secures the dental implant into the jawbone using titanium because it is lightweight, strong and biocompatible. Biocompatible means that it is not rejected by our bodies.
2. Healing: After the implant is inserted, the bone around the dental implant will begin the process of healing. This is what makes the dental implant so strong. The bone actually grows around it and holds it into place, which takes some time. This process can take a few months before the replacement tooth can be attached.
3. Replacing the tooth: The most exciting and last stage is the placement of the new tooth. The tooth will be custom sized, shaped and colored to match your existing natural teeth so no one will be able to tell the difference.
