Dental Implants – One of Dentistry’s Greatest Advances


One of the greatest advances in dentistry over the years has been the dental implant. A dental implant is a titanium  fixture that is placed into bone. Through a process called osseointegration, the implant fuses to the bone, serving as replacement for a tooth's  root.

Once placed by a qualified oral surgeon, periodontist, or prosthodontist, the implant is allowed ample time to integrate with the bone.  Integration ranges between three and six months in duration. After a process called uncovering, it is the general dentist's responsibility to restore the crown portion.

The implant can be used for single tooth replacement (see diagram 1 below) or in groups of two or more for fixed bridges (see diagram 2 below). Implants can also be used to increase retention and stabilize a full denture, known as an overdenture(see diagram 3 below).

If you have any questions about dental implants or to schedule an appointment, please contact your nearest Allied Dental location.
