The new standard for replacing missing teeth is quickly becoming the dental implant. In the past decade or so, dental implants have improved, and the success rate is very high. These factors, along with the aesthetics, make them the ideal restorative dental treatment for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants give the appearance, function and feel of natural teeth.
The dental implant consists of three different parts. The part that is placed into the jaw bone is the implant. It is a biocompatible screw-like pin that is carefully inserted into the bone in a precise position. Implants are usually titanium. The second part of the implant is called the abutment. This piece fits onto the implant post and is used to hold the crown, which is the final part of the structure. The crown is often made of porcelain and resembles a tooth.
There are a few different ways that an implant can be placed, and your dentist will discuss the best method for your particular situation. Implants take time to heal. The bone needs to fuse with the post in order for the implant to be successful. This happens over a period of months. After this process, called osseointegration, has been completed, the abutment is placed on the post. The crown is then attached to the abutment.
