Dental implants are a process through which the roots of natural teeth are replaced with metal supports similar to screws, and the damaged or missing tooth is replaced with an artificial tooth that closely resembles real teeth in terms of shape and performance.
Dental implants are a good alternative to dentures or dental bridges that do not match the nature of the jaw and natural tooth roots as required.
The way dental implants are performed depends on the type of component being implanted and the condition of the jawbone. The implant takes several operations spanning several months until the dental implant process is completed in its final form.
The main benefit of the implants is to provide solid support for the new tooth, and this process requires the bone to completely heal around the “implant” being implanted. Since the process of complete healing itself takes up to several months, and it is estimated at an average of three months in most patients.
