Why choose daily care?
Dental implants — natural teeth / roots replacements — are an alternative to partial and complete dentures or bridges. The implant, which works like a tooth, provides more comfort and stability than the dentures. Implants can restore the ability to chew food, and improve the appearance of speech and face.
How to put implants?
Implant surgery is carried out in the office of a dentist, in a three-step procedure:
A dentist surgically places an implant in the jawbone directly, like a natural root of the tooth. The implant will typically remain covered for three to six months after this initial operation, allowing the bone to grow around the implant to help hold it in place.
When this waiting time is over, the dentist must remove the implant and add an extension to the implant, called a post.
During the third and final stage the implant will act as a foundation for the new tooth once healing is completed. The dentist then makes a crown (or another replacement of the artificial tooth) and attaches it to the implant post.
Depending on the patient, the entire process may take between 3 and 6 months to complete.
