If you have missing teeth, then you may want to consider talking to your dentist about dental implants.
A dental implant is manufactured from surgical grade titanium. Dental implants are surgically placed inside the lower or upper jaw. They serve as an anchor for replacement teeth.
There are several steps involved in getting dental implants. The first thing that the dentist will do is place the dental implant inside of your jawbone. You will have to wait several months for the dental implant to fuse with the bone. The final step in this process is to attach the artificial tooth or teeth.
If you have questions about replacing missing teeth and are thinking about dental implants, contact Dr. Dana Walters in Hilliard and Upper Arlington, Ohio.
