Titanium fixture that is embedded into the bone (by/at the Oral Surgeon’s) requires a healing period of 4-6 months before the crown may be placed on top for the finished product. When finished, the implant will look and act like a normal tooth.
When cared for properly, implants can be one of the best long-term options for replacing missing teeth. Consultation required (in office and at the Oral Surgeon). Not everyone is candidate for dental implants. Proper bone density and strong immune system are required.
