If you’re suffering from a missing tooth or teeth due to gum disease, an accident, tooth decay or a failed root canal, there exists an easy, permanent and effective solution. Dental implants or restorations are a great way to replace your missing tooth/teeth and can give you the function and look of a natural tooth.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial structure that is anchored into place in the jaw so that that it may function as a permanent solution to tooth loss. There are three parts to a dental implant: the titanium implant which fuses with the jawbone overtime, the abutment that protrudes out of the gum line, and the crown which is the natural looking tooth prosthesis that covers the abutment.
Implant restoration involves surgically anchoring implants into the jawbone below the gum line, then attaching an artificial tooth to those implants. After the implant has been placed, your gum and bone will continue to grow around it, ensuring that the implant stays firmly in place.
