Replacing a missing tooth by using a prosthetic one is the best way to restore oral aesthetics and functionality. Making sure the prosthetic tooth is secure, stable, and aesthetically pleasing is essential. All these factors are satisfied with dental implants.
A dental implant comprises a metal fixture, preferably titanium, and a ceramic crown that looks just like a natural tooth. The metal stud would be inserted into the jawbone and acts as the tooth root. It has screw-like grooves on its surface, which helps to hold it firmly in place. A ceramic crown is fitted to it using a connecting element, called the abutment along with dental adhesives. Together, an implant forms the perfect tooth replacement solution.
There might be a number of reasons for tooth loss. Some of them are gum disease, tooth decay, injury, or a genetic condition. There are different options available to replace your lost tooth/teeth. Some of them are dental implants, full or partial dentures, or porcelain bridges. All of these procedures are performed in our dental office.
