Dental implants offer a replacement for missing teeth. They are not actually teeth but a prosthesis used in replacing missing teeth, which are small titanium posts inserted into the jawbone. On top of that, a crown, fixed bridge, partial denture, and full denture can be attached. It takes a few weeks to few months for the implants to integrate with your bones. After the implant integrates solidly with the bone, an abutment is attached to the implant to provide the proper transfer of forces to the implant and for alignment with the rest of the teeth.. Finally, a crown is screwed on to the abutment.
