The process of placing dental implants

Dental implants are not for everyone. You must have good oral health and have healthy enough bones to support your dental implants. Your dentist will check your teeth and, after the consultation, will perform an x-ray on your teeth. 

After getting local anesthesia, your dentist will make a small cut in your gum to reveal the bone in your jaw during your first dental implant surgery. Your dentist will drill a hole in the bone and then insert the dental implant before sewing the gums around the implant. 

Your dentist will usually take an x-ray to make sure the implants are in place properly. Over the next few months, the bone will slowly stick to the implant.

Dental implants offer many advantages. They can enhance your smile and are more comfortable than dentures. In addition, dental implants do not slide like dentures. Implants last longer than dentures and often last a lifetime.
