What Are Dental Implants?
The tooth restoration service of placing dental implants involves surgically placing a titanium screw (the implant) into the jawbone which then fuses with the bone and acts just like a regular tooth root. These make for a much stronger foundation to replace missing teeth. Dentures, for example, only address the upper portion of the teeth above the gumline, which does nothing to maintain the jawbone’s density, so it will gradually deteriorate over time, making the dentures fit poorly.
Once your dental implant has been placed, the jawbone will eventually fuses with the surface of the screw and fuse with the implant in a process called osseointegration. Once ready, a connecting attachment that holds the crown to the implant is attached. The crown itself is the replacement tooth over the gumline, which will be color-matched so it is indistinguishable from other teeth.
