A dental implant is a porcelain tooth called the crown, with a small, sturdy, titanium post that functions as its root structure. An abutment is a metal piece which attaches the crown to the titanium implant.
Dental Implants are often taken to be cosmetic dentistry, as missing teeth can be aesthetically undesirable. However, research has shown that missing teeth can lead to faster gum disease and tooth decay if the area is left open, and missing teeth may also disrupt the alignment of other teeth. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to regain the ability to eat virtually anything and smile with comfort and confidence, we’ve got you covered! Dental Implants are replacements for missing teeth that provide the same function as your natural tooth, and they are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost your tooth!
