What is a dental Implant? a more natural alternative to replace a missing tooth ( or teeth).
Implant is a post usually made of Titanium that is surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the natural tooth. After the surgery, there is about 6-10 months healing time , during that time a temporary crown ( cap) is screwed on to the implant so you can still function as normal . After the healing process, a permanent crown (cap) will be fabricated and cemented/screwed to the implant. The process is not painful at all.
