Leslie North Dental
Tooth loss is something we all hope to never deal with. But with today’s technology, losing a tooth is nothing to worry about because it can be replaced by a natural looking and functioning replica – with dental implants!
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is surgically placed into the jaw bone to support a single tooth, bridge or denture. After the implant is placed it takes a period of 4- 6 months to integrate itself into the jaw bone. The dentist will monitor the implant healing through regular follow-ups, and the permanent prosthesis (crown, bridge or denture) can be placed when healing is confirmed. Once the process is complete the tooth looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.

- When you go home, you may be prescribed with painkillers to easily manage any pain from the operation until the pain goes away.
- Dental implant procedures can take between two to nine months, depending on the treatment plan, and rate of tissue bonding to the implant. Once the tissue effectively heals by bonding to the implant, your dentist creates a replacement restoration that looks and functions like a natural tooth.
