Dental implants are becoming a very popular technique to replace missing teeth.
The dental implant is becoming such a popular option because it has a success rate
around 97%, and they replace teeth that looks, feels, and functions as a natural
tooth. The dental implant is a titanium post that is placed into the jawbone.
With time the bone binds to the post creating a stable foundation for a crown to be placed on top. Once the implant post is stable, which takes 3-6 months, a healing collar will be placed on top of the implant post. Impressions are taken to make sure the crown will be placed on top of the implant post in the most ideal position.
