Dental implants make it possible to replace missing teeth and provide support for the jaw bone. They also provide a permanent and stable solution to replace one or multiple missing teeth. Implants are composed of three parts: the implant post, abutment, and crown.
The implant post is a screw made of titanium that is surgically placed into the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This post acts as a replacement for the missing tooth root and ensures that the implant is stable. Afterward, a period of healing is required to allow the jawbone to bond with the post. Once this is complete, the dentist will then place the abutment and implant crown, which fit on top of the post.
Dental implants can restore your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
