Once the implant is placed, the patient will need to wait for several weeks to several months for the implant to fuse with the jawbone. During this time, the patient may wear a temporary restoration to maintain their smile and allow the implant to heal. After the implant has fused with the jawbone, the dentist will attach an abutment to the implant, which serves as a connector between the implant and the dental prosthesis. Finally, the dental prosthesis, such as a crown, bridge, or denture, is placed onto the abutment to provide a natural-looking and functional replacement for the missing teeth. Dental implants have numerous benefits over other tooth replacement options, including improved oral health, enhanced speech and chewing function, and a natural-looking smile.
