Although dental implants were technically invented back in 1965, it wasn’t until recently they become one of the most popular options when it comes to missing tooth replacement. Tooth implants are made using three parts, which include the implant, the abutment, and the prosthetic.
The implant itself is a tiny, titanium post which your dentist will surgically attach to the jawbone. Due to the fact it is made from titanium, the post will fuse and bond with the bone, becoming part of the patient.
The abutment is used to attach the prosthetic to the implant. Once the implant has healed, your dentist will attach the abutment to the tiny portion of the implant that is still visible.
The prosthetic can be made using a few things, dental crowns, dental bridges, partial and even dentures. Depending upon how many teeth you need to replace and your overall oral health, your dentist can decide the best option for your smile.
Dental implants do not require adhesive pastes to stay in, will not come loose during the day, and require no dietary restrictions. Patients enjoy the freedom and natural-looking smile that implant dentistry can provide.
