Auburn WA, Dentist, Dr. Marie Durflinger: Strong, Beautiful & Natural Looking Dental Implants
Thirty years ago, a dental implant may have seemed like science fiction but with continued advancements in dentistry, dental implants are considered a standard practice to replace a missing tooth. Implants are strong, permanent, safe and look and feel very natural. If you are missing a tooth or teeth due to trauma, gum disease, a tooth abscess or severe tooth decay a dental implant may be the right solution for you. Dental implants can even support a denture if you are missing all of your teeth.
Dental Implant Treatment
A dental implant is made of a post, an abutment and crown and the procedure is completed in two phases. The first phase is the placement of the post and this is done by an oral surgeon. Before the second phase begins, several weeks up to a few months are required for healing. During this time, the bone is integrating with the post. This bone fusion process is called osseointegration and it is important for long-term implant strength. After the healing is completed, phase two can begin. During this phase, a custom abutment and crown are placed onto the post completing the implant.
