What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are man made tooth roots permanently anchored to the upper and lower jaw bones. They are the ideal replacement solution for missing or failing teeth due to their strength, natural appearance, longevity, and feel. Dental implants provide a strong base for replacement teeth, which means there is no movement or slip-outs like that experienced by traditional dentures. They are the absolute best solution to achieve a comfortable, natural smile.
Dental Implant Structure
- The implant: An implant is a screw-like post that creates a strong foundation for your new tooth. The implant is permanently attached to the bone.
- The abutment: The abutment connects your new tooth to the titanium implant.
- The crown: This is the new replacement tooth that is visible when you talk and smile. Our Doctors and lab use expert craftsmanship to make these from porcelain or zirconia. Your crown will be completely custom made to you, to match your natural teeth in size, color, and shape.
We use the very best implants made of medical-grade titanium. This strong metal combines with your existing jaw bone (i.e. osseointegration) to allow the implant to last a lifetime!
Dental implants allow our patients the to eat whatever they would like, talk to people with confidence, and to smile proudly at the world. New teeth, new life.
