What Are Dental Implants?

December 21, 2015 | Posted in Education

Dental implants are metal frames or posts that are surgically anchored into your jaw. Once they have been placed, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth. Because dental implants are anchored directly into your jawbone, artificial teeth that are mounted to them won’t move in your mouth.
 
When receiving dental implants, your dentist will have to perform a surgery to anchor the implant into your jawbone. Your gum is then secured over the implant, which will stay covered by the gum until the implant fuses with the bone. After some time, your dentist creates a crown (artificial tooth) that is then attached to the implant.
