Dental implants are a restorative dentistry option which involves surgically attaching artificial teeth roots and prosthetics to the patient’s jaw bone. Dental implants are actually comprised of multiple parts, which include:
The implant is actually a tiny, titanium post which is surgically attached to the jawbone, serving as an artificial tooth root, holding the abutment and prosthetic in place.
The abutment is attached to the implant following healing and allows the prosthetic restoration to be properly secured in the mouth.
The prosthetic restoration can be a dental crown, bridge, partial or even denture and is designed to look as much like a natural smile as possible. Depending upon your oral health, ultimate smile goals and various other factors, your dentist can help you select the right option for you.
When it comes to restoring smiles, there is nothing quite like dental implants.
Dental implants allow your dentist to restore your missing teeth, improving the appearance of your smile while also giving your face a more youthful look.
Once placed, dental implants can greatly improve a patient’s ability to properly pronounce words and speak.
With dental implants, dietary restrictions and problems eating are a thing of the past. Our patients can enjoy corn, taffy and even caramel!
