Dental Implants 101
Dental implants are the ideal solution to replace a missing tooth. Unlike a bridge that relies on grinding down adjacent teeth, a dental implant does not disturb existing teeth or work elsewhere in your mouth. A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone replicating the root of a tooth. Once a dental implant is healed into the bone, a process called osseo-integration which can take weeks to months, a crown is placed onto the dental implant. Placing and restoring dental implants are predictable and routine procedures performed at Peachland Dental in Punta Gorda.
