If you recently lost a tooth or have full or partial dentures, you might want to consider a dental implant. Getting an implant is basically a three part process:
An anchor – a titanium screw – is embedded in the jaw bone
A post is inserted into the anchor to hold an artificial tooth
The artificial tooth is attached to the post
In some cases, the whole procedure may require no more than two or three sessions, depending on the clinical situation. Your dentist can explain the whole procedure in detail and provide you with an estimate of time and costs.
