If you are considering dental implants as a solution for missing teeth, take some time to learn about the procedure and the key benefits of a dental implant.
Dental implants are made of three key pieces: the titanium implant, an abutment, and a crown that looks just like your natural tooth. The implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone through a process called osseointegration. An abutment is fitted over the implant and then the crown is placed over the abutment.
If you are a candidate for tooth surgery with dental implants, you may need to undergo a bone grafting procedure prior to implant placement to ensure the implant is fused to the jaw bone properly. After successful placement, the implants increase stability in the jaw and help to maintain jaw health just like your real teeth.
Dental implants provide great benefits for patients and are the preferred method of tooth replacement. If you think you may need tooth surgery to restore missing teeth, schedule a consultation with Dr. Yazbeck, general dentist
