A dental implant is a titanium (or ceramic) post that is placed into your jawbone to act as a replacement for your natural tooth root. Dental implants are a great way to restore your smile if you have missing teeth. Implants are also used to support dental bridges and dentures.
Dental implants are made of titanium and zirconia, which are biocompatible metals that allow for your body to heal around them. The implant becomes a part of your body and provides a solid foundation for your new tooth.
Dental implants are the strongest and most durable option for replacing missing teeth. With proper care, they can last a lifetime! Many dental offices will refer you to a specialist to have a dental implant placed, but at Taher Family Dental we have you covered. Our office meticulously plans each case to ensure that the tooth that sits on top of the implant is in the best possible position. It’s important to replace missing teeth because it can affect your bite, how you speak, and the overall health of your mouth.
Dental implant components:
- Surgical guide – commonly used to guide the implant placement
- Implant – the foundation for your new tooth
- Abutment – component that connects the tooth to the implant
- Dental crown – the tooth that is placed on the implant
