Dental implants replace tooth roots with a fixed foundation or removable teeth after teeth loss. Implants are made to match patient’s natural teeth, including their color. Implants look and feel like one’s own teeth. They improve appearance, speech, self-esteem, and help with eating.
The success rate of dental implants is around 98%. There is less pain in the procedure, and local anesthesia might be used. The healing process takes from 6 to 12 weeks as the jawbone grows around the implanted metal post.
