WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?
Each of your natural teeth includes a root and a crown. That’s why implant-supported replacement teeth are the next-best-thing to real teeth. They have the same parts, including a replacement root that is anchored beneath the jaw, and a crown that is designed with your specific smile in mind.
In time, your dental implants will bond with your jawbone. The strong titanium implants are a reliable foundation for replacement teeth. A support post, called an abutment, is placed onto the implant, which is then topped with the restoration of your choice. For more information on dental implants, read our blog post here.
