Dental implant is long-term solution that is attached in your jawbone to act just like your natural teeth. What's good about dental implants is they can't develop cavities. Dental implants will not affect neighboring healthy teeth or lead to bone loss in the jaw, unlike fixed bridges or removable dentures. These implants can last a lifetime if properly cared for.
Implants are created from titanium metal that fuses with the jawbone through a process called "osseointegration." Usually, it takes several months for osseointegration to fully embed once the implant is put into your jawbone. Osseointegration is why implants never slip or make embarrassing noises like dentures, and why bone loss is usually not a problem.
