How do dental implants work?

Posted by Dr. Alicia Abeyta DDS FAGD on Jul 16 2014, 11:03 AM

Dental implants work by replacing your teeth roots, which are naturally embedded in the jawbone. After your procedure, the implants will bond with your jawbone as a natural tooth root would. This bonding process is called osseointegration.
After this bonding process, your dentist will attach a dental crown to the implant. Your original tooth roots are no longer necessary, and your jawbone will begin to naturally grow around your new implant.
