A dental implant is designed for toothless areas. It is a safe alternative treatment to a bridge or denture. Dental implants involve implanting artificial dental roots made of special metal (titanium) to the jawbone for a natural feel as well as aesthetic satisfaction.
When you are considering implants, you must have adequate bone to support the implant. If your bone is too soft and unable to support an implant, you will require a bone graft.
In a bone graft procedure your oral implantologist will use a special bone grafting material, and graft it onto your jaw bone. There will then be a waiting period of 2-3 months while the bone graft creates enough new, strong bone in your jaw to make sure that the implant will be successful and able to support your dental implant.
