Dental implants consist of three main components: the implant post, the abutment, and the restoration. The implant post, made from titanium, replaces the root of the tooth and supplies the stability for the prosthetic. This post is made from biocompatible and durable titanium, which fuses with bone to restore overall support. The abutment connects the prosthetic to the tooth, completing your aesthetic tooth replacement, from the root to crown.
The benefits of dental implants include:
- Improved Stability of Prosthetic Teeth
- Added Comfort for Crowns, Bridges, and Dentures
- No Diet Restrictions
- Support to Jaw Structure
When a tooth goes missing, it’s important to fill the resulting space, otherwise the risk for teeth shifting and bone density loss greatly increases. Implants are a predictable and lasting way to protect your health and appearance after tooth loss.
The versatility of dental implants allows us to replace a single tooth with a crown, a row of teeth with a bridge, or an entire arch of teeth with a denture. For patients missing several teeth or those who are completely edentulous, we recommend undertaking an examination to determine whether they will benefit from the procedure.
