Dental implants are permanent fixtures that support replacement teeth when natural teeth have been lost due to age, tooth decay, or injury. They provide a more permanent solution than traditional dentures, bridges, or veneers, which are prone to slipping or falling out.
Dental implants consist of three parts: the implant, which is a screw that is placed into the jawbone and becomes fused with the natural bone, the abutment which is a connector that holds the teeth, and the tooth itself, which is the portion that is visible.
You can use dental implants to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full set of teeth for upper or lower dentures. If you need to restore a full arch, you may be a perfect candidate for the All-on-4 treatment. Because they fit, feel, and function like natural teeth, dental implants are quickly becoming the new standard in tooth replacement.
