Whether due to an accident, injury, or tooth decay, there may come a time when a tooth may be missing or can no longer be saved and needs to be extracted. A dental implant is the solution to a missing or extracted tooth, which is a permanent prostheses fixed in it’s place. They can serve as a single replacement for one tooth, or multiple replacements for multiple teeth. Multiple Dental Implants may have advantages over a bridge or partial/full dentures, depending on your particular case.
Dental Implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The Dental Implant process itself is performed over a few months. After the Dental Implant is inserted and has had time to heal, the next piece, called an abutment, is attached to the implant. The abutment serves as a connection piece between the implant and the crown. The final stage is then attaching the crown onto the abutment, leaving you with a fully replaced tooth.
