Dental implants are used to permanently replace missing teeth, as they replace the dental roots as well as the crown. When it comes to picking the type of dental implant you want, there are many options. The majority of implants are made with high-quality material and will last for a lifetime. However, in order for an implant to be successful, it is essential that your jaw bone and the implant screw become integrated. This is where the differences between implant brands plays a big role.

Most dental implants are made of titanium, which is a highly durable and reliable material. In addition, most companies spray calcium phosphate on the outside of the dental screws in an attempt to improve and encourage bone integration. While this may prove to be successful in some cases, 3i dental implants add calcium phosphate as part of the screw’s makeup, ultimately improving your rates of success. 3i dental implant screws are also shaped like a cone, allowing our dentists to more accurately place the implant and give our patients a comfortable implant that can withstand the pressure of your bite.

3i dental implants are inserted in a procedure very similar to other types of dental implants. Most procedures take two visits. Under local anesthetic, our dentists will make an incision where the implant will be placed. By exposing the jaw bone, we will drill a small hole into the bone and screw in the implant. Our dentists will close up the incision and place a temporary cap over the implant. After about 10 days, your stitches will be removed. However, the complete healing process can take 10 to 12 weeks. Following your recovery, we will provide a customized, permanent restoration on top of your implant, completing your new smile!
