Frequently Asked Dental Implant Questions
A dental implant is a surgical dental procedure that involves both the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to take the role of an orthodontic anchor.
Implants rely on a metal anchor that functions as a tooth root replacement. They are surgically inserted in the jawbone. This may be put in place in either the upper or lower jawbone. After the implant is put in place, small posts are then attached to the implant, which will extend into the gums. This provides stable anchors for your artificial teeth replacements.
Implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are inserted into your jawbone during a minor surgical procedure that takes place in our Plymouth, MN dental office. After the dental implants are placed in your jawbone, a completely lifelike porcelain tooth crown is attached. In some cases, the implant needs to fuse with the bone for several months before it is permanently crowned; in other cases, you can have new (but temporary) teeth the same day your implants are placed.
