dental-implants-dentist-newingtonAnyone who is missing one or more of their teeth  due to  injury,decay or  gum disease is a perfect candidate for dental implant. A dental implant has many advantages over other tooth replacement options  because it replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.

For placing a dental implant, there has to be enough bone in the jaw to hold the implant. The remaining bone should be also strong enough  to hold and support the implant. In  a condition where  there is not enough bone, it can be added by bone augmentation or bone grafting procedure. Along with this, the surrounding tissues and teeth where the implant will be placed should be in good condition.

How do they work?

An implant-restored tooth includes the following parts:

  • An implant made up of titanium placed in the upper or lower jawbone.
  • An abutment  normally made of titanium, gold or porcelain  attached to the implant with a screw,  connecting  the implant to the crown.
  • The restoration part (crown) composed of porcelain fused to a metal alloy. The crown is cemented or screwed onto the abutment and the screw hole is covered with restorative material such as tooth-colored filling material.

First, the dental implant is surgically placed in an opening in the jawbone where your implant integrates with the bone. It functions as a new root for the crown to replace  your missing tooth. Secondly, after fitting the implant, a crown or an artificial cap designed like a natural tooth is attached to the implant  which fills the space left in the mouth due to the missing tooth.
