What Is A Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically implanted into the upper or lower jawbone, where it serves as an anchor for various types of custom tooth restorations, such as a crown. A dental implant is the closest option available to a natural tooth root.
This is the dental work that becomes such an important fixture of your new smile. The crown is extremely durable and is designed to last decades.
The abutment sits close to the gum line and is affixed to the screw. The abutment holds the crown in place.
The screw is embedded below the gum line and acts as an anchor for the dental implant. The screw is made of titanium.
The Consequences Of Bone Loss
Missing and failing teeth unfortunately lead to shifting teeth and a shrinking jawline. This causes your face to look much older than you really are. This is due to the loss of height by your receding jaw that creates extra wrinkles and sagging tissue around your mouth.
Dental implants, not only keep you from losing your other natural teeth but they also help reestablish the height of your jaw and fill out areas of wrinkled and sagging tissue surrounding your mouth.
