The process of placing a dental implant into your mouth involves a few steps and can take up to six months for a completely new tooth to be built and fixed into your mouth. The dental implant itself is a screw that is made of a combination of titanium and other materials. This implant screw is anchored into your jawbone in the position where the new tooth will eventually be placed. This implant will serve as a support for the replacement tooth to be placed on top. The implant is then given some time to fuse with the jawbone through a process known as osseointegration. Once the implant has fused with the bone, a replacement tooth is attached to a small metal post that protrudes from the implant. Even though the process of implantation and placement of a new tooth may take a while, the results are definitely worth the wait.
