Dental Implants In Glendale, AZ
Dental implant surgery is a procedure to replace missing teeth with a prosthetic replacement. A metal dental post is placed in the root of the tooth and acts as a replacement for the lost root. The metal dental post is placed into the jawbone and fuses over the span of a few months to the bone, acting like a natural tooth because of its stability. The process of the dental implant fusion to the bone is called osseointegration.
Dental implants are typically made of medical grade titanium which allows them to be integrated into the bone without the possibility of rejection. The success rate of these dental implants is close to 98%.
