Dental Implants-Diagnosis and Treatment Options

Single-unit dental implant

Restoring the mouth with a dental implant is accomplished in two phases. The first phase is the surgical placement of the implant. It is left under the gums for several months so the bone can attach to it. After healing, the second phase begins; the implant is re-exposed, and the new crown is made.

Two-units bridge implants

Dental implants are small titanium cylinders that are surgically inserted into the bone of the jaw to replace the roots of missing teeth. Artificial teeth are attached to the implants and can be used as part of a bridge.
