As the contrarily, residual teeth may move to cause the bite to collapse.

Dental Implants Surgery
The process for having dental implants includes two separate operational procedures. The initial surgery is to put the implant post in the jawbone and is normally carried under local anesthesia. An incision is formed in the gum tissue before a hole is created. The implant is put into the hole, and the gum is stitched. The site is left to heal so the implant post can integrate firmly with the jawbone, and the process of healing is called osseointegration. During the process of new bone cells will grow around the implant post and ensuring it can't move and is tough enough to hold a restoration.
The next surgical procedure is taking place between three to eight months later, the implant will be exposed and assessed. Will determine, if the implant post has successfully secured into the jawbone. It may be important to make some changes. If the implant has failed to lock in then, it may need to be extracted, choices at this stage can include replacing the implant, or placing the implant at a different area. If the implant support has been successful then the second surgical procedure is to create an opening in the gum to expose the implant and placing a post known as a restorative cap. A tooth can be connected that will extend above the gum line into the mouth. The cap is utilized to mold the gum tissue to give support to the crown, or bridge.
The final phase attaches a metal bolt know as an abutment into the implant, and this will be used to hold the crown or bridge. At this time, your conclusive prosthesis can be created.
