Dental implants are a long-lasting, stable tooth replacement option. Unlike other restorative treatments, they can last a lifetime with proper care. Implants are designed to be a permanent replacement option, and they do a lot more work to preserve the structure of your smile than other options.
Dental implants are made of three main parts: the post, the abutment and the prosthesis. The first part, the post, is a small, biocompatible titanium screw that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. This post is what makes dental implants so special: it simulates the root of a lost tooth, creating an incredibly stable base for the restoration as well as preventing future bone loss! Dr. is especially skilled in oral surgery, and you can be confident your implant post will be placed with care and precision.
The second part of the implant, the abutment, acts as the connection between the post and the prosthesis. The abutment is like a small tooth and seals the gum tissue around the implant to keep it safe from infection and inflammation. This part of the implant is important not only for connecting the rest of the restoration but in helping keep the rest of your mouth healthy and safe.
The last part of the implant is the prosthesis, the part that looks and acts like the tooth surface. This is often a crown, when single teeth are being replaced, but it can also be an implant-supported bridge or denture, which span multiple implant posts to anchor into the jawbone. Whatever prosthesis you receive, our dentist and team will make sure it blends in with the rest of your smile and is comfortable for you.
