What is Involved in Dental Implant Treatment?
A new tooth root is created by placing an implant in the location of your missing tooth. A dental implant is made from a surgical grade of titanium and resembles a small screw.
Your dental implant is placed into your bone and gum tissue during an oral surgery procedure. After a healing period the abutment (post) is placed within your implant allowing the placement of a dental crown that restores your tooth structure above your gum line.
