What is Osseointegration?
General Dentist and Cosmetic Dental Services in Edmonton, Alberta
The process of osseointegration is rather slow and can take some time. For dental implants, this often means waiting between three and six months. However, the wait is worth it; once osseointegration is complete, the dental implant will be a fully integrated part of your jawbone.
This provides your new, artificial tooth with unparalled support and an extraordinarily stable foundation. Along with the strong materials (porcelain and titanium) used in their construction, this explains why dental implants can last decades.
