About Dental Implants
Although implant dentistry is a newer advancement in dental treatment options, it has quickly become one of the most popular options for patients when it comes to replacing missing teeth. At Town Center Dental, our dental implants are actually compromised of multiple parts, which include the implant itself, the abutment and the prosthetic restoration which serves as the artificial tooth or teeth.
The dental implant is a tiny, often titanium post which serves as an artificial tooth root and is surgically attached to the jawbone and then left to heal, actually becoming a part of the patient’s oral structure.
The abutment is attached to the tiny portion of the implant that is still visible once the treatment has fully healed and is used to secure the prosthetic restoration to the implant.
The prosthetic restoration is what actually serves as the artificial tooth or teeth and can be a dental crown, dental bridge, partial denture or even complete denture depending upon the patient’s oral health and exact smile goals.
