Dental Implant Placement

Dental Implants Are Ideal for Replacing TeethIllustration of a natural tooth and a dental implant

If you are suffering with missing teeth, failing teeth, or chronic dental problems, you have several options. However, only one will give you the comfort and security that offers all the fit, feel, and function of natural teeth: the amazing dental implant.

Dental implants typically have three parts:

  1. The implant: A screw that serves as a root for your new teeth. This is inserted into the jawbone and is usually made of high-quality metal such as medical-grade titanium.

  2. The abutment: A component that attaches to the implant and extends through the soft tissue to support the replacement tooth.

  3. The crown: The part of the replacement tooth you can see. It’s usually made of porcelain or zirconium for durability and a natural-looking appearance.

Your implant is placed in the bone of your jaw with a minimally invasive procedure, the bone will actually begin to attach to the titanium implant, a custom-made porcelain crown is placed on top, and you have a new, natural-looking tooth.
