Dental implants are small posts used to replace your tooth roots, on which rest false teeth.
Your health is a big factor when it comes to whether you should or should not get dental implants. Your health is actually more important than your age in this regard—diabetes, leukemia, and other chronic illnesses may interfere with the healing process post-surgery.
You may need to be medically evaluated by a physician before any implant surgery is scheduled.
Our Rigby dental implants are made of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body.
How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants require longer procedures than other dental services. Normally it takes at least 2 visits before the procedure is fully completed.
Here’s what you can expect:
If teeth need to be removed, there will be an initial healing process before moving on to step 2.
The implants themselves—which resemble little posts—will be installed into the bone.
Now the jaw bone and gums need to heal around these artificial tooth roots. This can take between 4 and 6 months.
The final step is when the false teeth are installed onto the dental implants. This is usually a quick process—it shouldn’t take more than a single visit.
