Dental implants are considered the most effective and permanent solution for replacing missing teeth and are associated with many benefits including their natural look and their ease of care. Other tooth replacement options like removable dentures do not offer these benefits and may not be the solution for every patient.
Implants consist of three parts, a titanium implant post, an abutment, and a crown. The titanium post is placed directly into the jawbone where it then becomes integrated into the bone itself, becoming permanent. This integration, called osseointegration, can take several months.
At Georgian Dental®, we have been using an innovative photo laser procedure that reduces inflammation at the surgical site and improves the efficiency of bone generating cells called osteoblasts. This procedure can help reduce the osseointegration time by 30%! This means our patients get more reliable and faster results ahead of everyone else.
