If you're considering receiving a dental implant, you probably already know the basics. A small guide hole will be made in your jawbone and then widened slightly to accommodate the implant. The implant itself (a titanium alloy screw) is then inserted. The peak of the implant is often fitted with a healing cover, and a temporary prosthetic tooth may also be added for cosmetic purposes. Osseointegration then begins, which is literally the bone regrowing around the implant, holding it in place to create a stable base for your permanent prosthetic tooth.
