- Implants are titanium posts, which are inserted into the jawbone where teeth are missing.
- Implants also help preserve facial structure and prevent bone loss that occurs when teeth are missing.

First, implants are placed in your jawbone.There is a four to six month healing period during which the implant bonds to your jawbone. The second surgical procedure involves uncovering the implants and attaching a small abutment.These abutments protrude through the gum and will accept a permanent crown.
