Dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. They are artificial tooth roots that are typically made of titanium. They are a stable and durable foundation for the replacement tooth or teeth.
Did you know an estimated 40 million people in the United States are fully edentulous? Living without teeth is a widespread condition that too many people silently suffer through. If that sounds like you or someone you love, the good news is that you have finally found a proven, cost-effective dental implant solution for tooth replacement.
Talking and laughing freely, enjoying a new level of confidence, and, let’s face it, looking great are all ways dental implants can improve your overall well-being. But what about some of the other health benefits they can provide? For example, dental implants provide further benefits such as:
- Restores ability to eat and chew food as with natural teeth.
- Prevents any shifting or migrating of teeth into the edentulous site.
Now let’s look briefly at some technical parts of Dental Implants.
Dental Implants Technical Overview
Implant: This is the titanium post that is inserted into the jawbone. It is an anchor for the replacement tooth and provides stability and support.
Abutment: The abutment is a connector that is attached to the implant. It protrudes above the gum line and holds the replacement tooth or crown in place.
Crown or Prosthesis: The crown is the visible part of the dental implant that resembles a natural tooth. It is custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking smile.
