Dental implants are titanium replacements for missing teeth. Dental implants are designed to be placed in the bone where the natural tooth is missing. Once the dental implant is placed the bone, a process called “osseointegration” occurs over a period of 3-4 months. The bone grows around the implant and secures it in the bone. Once the implant is completely healed it can be used as the foundation for a crown (cap) that will function like a new tooth.
