Dental Implants are permanent and appealing solution to replace missing teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new teeth. However, the process is performed over the course of a few months. You may need grafting of bone and wait 3~6 months where implant will be placed if you don’t have enough bone there. Then, we can place implant itself in the bone and we have wait 3~6 months for it to integrate into your bone. After the implant is integrated into your bone, we can place the crown on that implant.
