Although dental implants have been around for a while, it wasn’t until recently that they exploded in popularity as one of the go-to treatments for missing teeth replacement. Implant dentistry utilizes tiny, titanium posts known as dental implants which are surgically attached to the patient’s jawbone. Due to the material used and placement, over time, these dental implants actually bond and fuse with the bone, becoming a part of the patient’s natural smile.
Dental implants are typically comprised of three parts, the implant, the abutment and the restoration. The implant, as previously mentioned is a tiny titanium post which is surgically attached to the jaw bone. Once healed, the abutment is then attached to the tiny portion of visible dental implant. The abutment allows the prosthetic to be attached to the implant. The prosthetic restoration can be a dental crown, a dental bridge, a partial denture or even a complete denture depending upon various factors.
When it comes to having missing teeth, it is important to replace them as quickly as possible. Having missing teeth can result in bone loss, demineralization and even loose teeth. Dental implants can prevent these complications while improving the health, function and appearance of the patient’s smile.
