Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth
At Bradshaw Periodontics, dental implants are recommended to replace your missing teeth. Titanium screws are placed in your jaw bone replacing the tooth root and becoming an anchor for new teeth. This titanium screw or dental implant receives different attachments for healing and restoring teeth or anchoring dentures.
Titanium is compatible with the human body and allows the posts to fuse with your bone, creating a solid bond replicating the relationship between your natural tooth root and bone. This fusing process, or osseointegration, will occur over the span of three to six months. Once complete, Dr. Bradshaw will communicate and coordinate with your restorative dentist to start the fabrication and or placement of the abutment for crowns or attachments for dentures.
