The Procedure of Dental Implant Surgery

A dental implant is essentially a metal screw or titanium post which interfaces with your bone to sustain a dental implant for a tooth or bridge, denture, crown, plate or orthodontic cement. The implant consists of a material like silicon carbide or titanium and it is surgically implanted into the bone. The implant gives stability to your dental structure and also takes the load and pressure off your natural teeth. The process of dental implants is also called as osseointegration or osseointegrated implants. I strongly suggest you to visit dental implant in Chamblee to learn more about this.


There are different types of implants including: Gingive Implants, Hemiburn Implants, Dental bridges, Dental crowns and Predictive dentures. The procedure may require you to go through some medical checks to determine the health status of your gums and oral cavity. Dental implant surgery involves various types of anesthesia techniques which are normally given locally or may be required to sedate the patient before the surgery.

Before undergoing Dental Implant surgery you need to decide whether you want to have a single tooth replaced or all your teeth. You will have to talk extensively with your dentist before taking any decision. A good dentist will let you know about all the pros and cons of implants and also guide you through the procedure. Dental implants cost approximately one thousand dollars and sometimes higher. Your dental implant procedure may take one to three months. Your jaw bone is fractured and you need to spend at least six months in the hospital before you can resume your normal activities.
