What is a dental implant?

  • The Implant- The implant itself is a small titanium screw. The medical grade titanium is biocompatible.
    The implant post will fuse with the jawbone and promote healthy and natural bone regeneration. Dental implants secure the bite keeping teeth from shifting or the jawbone from deteriorating. The post can be thought of as a prosthetic tooth root.
  • The Abutment- The post takes approximately 3-6 months to integrate with the jawbone. Once the post is healed, an abutment is attached. The abutment is the anchor that secures the final dental restoration to the dental implant post.
  • Restoration- Dental implants, whether a patients receive one or several, are capped with a dental restoration. A dental crown, bridge or denture is custom designed and secured to the abutment. Modern dental restorations are decay and stain resistant and can be custom designed to look like your natural teeth for a seamless result.
