With new technology and innovation, Dental Implants are modern dentistry’s best option for replacing missing teeth. With the highest success rate of any tooth replacement procedure and with proper care, a Dental Implant can last just as long as your own natural teeth.
So what exactly is a Dental Implant?
Your tooth has two main parts:
1) The Crown (the pearly-white part that shows up when you smile)
2) The Root (the part below the gum line that anchors the tooth in the jaw).
An Implant (a special titanium component which permanently replaces the root part of the tooth) is inserted in the jawbone. A Crown Restoration (a prosthetic tooth that is created to look and function just like your natural tooth) is then placed on top of the Dental Implant.
Together they make a Dental Implant, a complete tooth replacement system.
What’s so great about this system?
Essentially, it is the fact that the implant is made of a titanium metal which has the ability to integrate with the living bone of your jaw. This special property is what allows an Implant that has been properly placed to remain looking great and functioning well for a very long time. And isn’t that what everyone wants from their teeth?
