An exciting area of dentistry today is the use of dental implants. This can range from placing a single tooth to a whole arch of teeth. Basically what a dental implant is, is a synthetic root, which is made of titanium and is implanted into the jawbone. We do the surgery here in many cases, and the most difficult cases I will refer to an oral surgeon, and work as a team with an oral surgeon to produce a result. The process of dental implants will take anywhere from four to six months for the implant to integrate with the surrounding bone and become stable enough to then be restored with a crown. So, from start to finish, you're looking at anywhere from five to seven months to have a tooth replaced with an implant. The gold standard in dentistry to replace a missing tooth has been a bridge, a bridge, which involves placing the crown on the teeth that are neighboring the missing tooth. Then fabricating a connector between those two crowns, and thereby replaces the missing tooth. The disadvantage in doing that is we have to involve other teeth in the replacement of a single tooth, and we're tying the fate of all three together. By and large, it's becoming more the standard to recommend a dental implant to replace a missing tooth than other methods.
