The reason dental implants have become such a popular option is simple: they are considered the closest dental restoration to natural teeth. This is because dental implants include both a synthetic tooth root and a replacement tooth crown. Thus, they look and function just like real teeth.
The process begins with a titanium post that is placed into your jaw. This post provides a stable foundation for your new tooth. Much like your natural tooth roots, this post will also stimulate the jawbone. Once the titanium post is placed, we will attach an abutment connector, allowing the new dental crown to sit atop the titanium post.
The crown is the visible portion of your new tooth and will the gap left behind by the missing tooth. The tooth crown is made out of porcelain and color-matched so your new tooth blends in with your natural teeth color.
