Benefits Of Dental Implants
Dental implants have a number of benefits, which is why this treatment is quite popular. They are durable and stable because of the bond between bone and implant. They also are highly functional, mimicking the chewing capacity of natural teeth and preserving the patient’s ability to speak properly.
What Makes Up A Dental Implant
There are three parts to a dental implant; the implant screw, abutment and the restorative crown. All three components play a vital role in the long-term success of a patient’s implant procedure.
Implant Screw: The implant screw serves as the root or base of the new tooth. The screw is permanently attached to the jaw bone which delivers a permanent solutions that is as strong as, if not stronger, than your naturally rooted teeth.
Abutment: The second step in setting the abutment which is essentially the permanent connection between the crown and the root (implant screw). The abutment is designed to be able to be removed by your dentist, if need be, for restoration procedures; however the abutment is designed to function as a fixed solution to the implant screw.
Crown: The last, but least important, step is the crown. The crown is the esthetic restoration component of the implant procedure; it essentially is the prosthetic tooth that is custom designed to fit your smile and bite. It is imperative that the crown is made of durable materials to ensure the longevity of the dental implant restoration.
