Placement of your implants
An implant replaces a single tooth. You can use implants to replace multiple teeth or even all of your teeth.
The implant looks like a screw that is placed into the jaw. In 2 to 6 months after placement, the screw bonds with your jawbone to create an anchor for the crown.
Caring for implants
Proper oral hygiene is necessary for everyone, but it is especially important for your implant. Keeping the area clean removes bacteria that can cause the bone to recede and weaken. With proper cleaning and hygiene, your implant can last a lifetime.
