About Dental Implants
What are Dental Implants?
After remarkable advances in dentistry in recent years, dental implants or teeth implants have become the treatment of choice for people missing one, a few, or all of their teeth, and for those with failing teeth or severe periodontal disease. Dental implants look, feel and perform more like natural teeth. They are rooted in the bone, there is no artificial plastic on the roof of the mouth, and the need for adhesives and denture creams is eliminated. More important, the use of teeth implants does not impact healthy, adjacent teeth.
A tooth implant is essentially a long-lasting tooth root replacement that our doctors surgically insert into the jawbone to replace the function of the former natural tooth. For dental implant patients, replacement teeth then can be restored immediately, returning a spectacular smile quickly– usually on the same day. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants don’t move or shift and they can last a lifetime.
A tooth implant designed to replace a single tooth is composed of three parts: the titanium implant that fuses with the jawbone; the abutment, which fits over the portion of the implant that protrudes from the gum line; and the crown which fits onto the abutment for a natural appearance.
