Understand What Dental Implants Are
When it comes to replacing missing or unrestorable teeth, implants are by far one of the most reliable long-term solutions. Implant teeth are strong, permanent, and worry-free.
But first, what are your natural teeth made of? They have two parts:
- The root, which is under the gum and which anchors the tooth to the jaw bone.
- The crown, which is the white part above your gum and which aids in chewing food.
So what is a tooth implant?
It is an artificial tooth root that takes the form of a screw-shaped titanium post, inserted into the jawbone to replace the root part of a missing tooth and that supports a crown (the visible part of the "fake" tooth). Implants are a permanent solution as long as they are checked regularly at regular dental examinations.
Implant - the screw-like material drilled into the jawbone that takes the place of the original tooth root. Implants are made of titanium because of its strength and because it is a highly biocompatible material with the body.
Abutment - the connector that is on top of the implant and serves as a bridge between the implant and third component, the crown.
Crown - the replacement tooth, shaped and tinted like a real tooth.
