Dental implants are natural-looking prosthetics that blend perfectly with your smile and function like a brand new set of teeth. Implants bond to your jaw so you can smile, eat, laugh and speak with complete freedom.
Single tooth implants are a secure, attractive, and lifelong solution to tooth loss.
Learning the components of a dental implant can help you understand how it effectively replaces a tooth.
A dental implant is comprised of three parts: the fixture, the abutment, and the porcelain crown.
When you complete the dental implant procedure, only the attractive porcelain crown is visible. The job of the abutment and fixture below is to replace the root of your tooth, and fight against jawbone deterioration.
The end result of your procedure will leave you feeling confident and free with a beautiful, full smile.
Your implants will be placed in one appointment and healing will take an average of two to six months. During this time, your jawbone performs osseointegration with your implant, so it fully supports the restoration for years to come.
You’ll never have to go without the appearance of a full smile — while your implant is healing we’ll fit you with a temporary crown to fill in any gaps.
