Dental implants are one of the most popular dental treatments for missing teeth. They are artificial and custom-crafted roots made of titanium metal, anchored to the jawbone or metal framework below the gum line and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. This ensures that implants develop a strong connection to the jaw and last a long time.
Dental implants are usually made of a biocompatible metal, such as titanium, since it is easily accepted by the human body and integrates tightly with the jaw for a stable connection. It mimics the look and feel of natural teeth to give you back your beautiful smile.
At Newmarket Dental, surgery is necessary to prepare your mouth and to place the implant in the mouth. Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. Patients will be administered anesthesia during the surgery and, if necessary, antibiotics to stave off infection following the procedure. Like any restoration, implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a long time.
