What is Osseointegration?

Osseointegration is the process that allows your dental implants to be accepted by your jaw as a new tooth root, which is essential for preventing jaw shrinkage and collapse. Of all the various methods of tooth replacement, dental implants alone undergo the process of osseointegration, making them the strongest and most reliable way to replace one or more missing teeth.

If you live in or around Pittsburg and would like more information on the dental implant process, please contact Dentonics or call 412-487-6910 today to schedule an appointment.

The Process of Osseointegration

Dental implants are made of biocompatible metals with numerous microscopic pores. Once inserted into your jaw, osteoblast integrate into the pores, allowing the implant to become a literal part of your body as opposed to a foreign device.

The process of osseointegration can take upwards of six months, but this wait is well worth it. Because of osseointegration, dental implants are able to restore complete function and strength while also preventing structural changes to your jaw. We would be happy to discuss this with you in greater detail during your Pittsburgh dental implant consultation.

If you are missing one or more teeth, please contact our experienced Pittsburgh implant dentists today to schedule an initial consultation.
