What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jawbone where the teeth are missing. They form a bond with the jawbone and act as a foundation for your new artificial teeth. It becomes a root to hold your new teeth firmly.

An abutment is placed on top of the titanium post which connects the post to the crown. The crown can be of different sizes and shapes. Depending on your current state, you can go with single crowns, multi-unit bridges, or full-arch dentures in extreme conditions.

Material of Dental Crowns:

There are mainly two crown types to choose from. You can either go with metal crowns or porcelain crowns. Other than aesthetics, the nature of your problem also dictates which type will be the best one for you.

The Procedure at Brookline Dental:

Dr. Mumtaz and her team specialize in implant dentistry. In most cases, the surgical procedure for the placement of dental implants involves two steps. In the first step, the implant is placed within your jawbone. It gradually creates a bond with the jawbone beneath the surface of the gums. This can take a few months to complete. During this stage, you can wear a temporary denture that allows you to eat easily.

After the implant has formed a bond with the jawbone, Dr. Mumtaz will begin with the second phase of the procedure. This step involves the placement of an abutment and the crown. The entire process can take 6 to 8 months.
