Dental implants are a newer advancement in restorative dentistry that allows your dentist to replace your missing teeth permanently. Dental implants are typically comprised of three different parts, including the implant itself, the abutment and the implant restoration.
The dental implant is a tiny, titanium post which your dentist will surgically attach to the jawbone, allowing it to heal and bond with the patient’s smile. Once healed, the abutment is then attached to the implant, allowing a dental implant restoration to be attached.
The dental implant restoration can be a dental crown, dental bridge, partial denture or even complete denture depending upon.
When a patient has missing teeth in their smile, it can actually result in further complications such as loose teeth, tooth shifting, tooth misalignment, and even tooth loss. Dental implants can reduce your risk of these complications.
Many patients select implant dentistry to restore their missing smile due to the fact it is permanent, secure and becomes part of the patient’s real smile.
