What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are a restorative dental procedure which replaces a missing tooth and its root. The implant itself is made up of three parts: a titanium, screw-like fixture, a porcelain prosthetic tooth, and an abutment which connects the other two components. The implant’s fixture is implanted into the bone below the missing tooth, replacing the root, while the prosthetic tooth fills the gap above the gum line. Though other tooth replacements accomplish the goal of filling a gap in the smile they cannot replace its root.
Do I need a dental implant?
Regardless if you have one or many missing teeth, a dental implant can help your smile. However, not everyone is a good candidate. Since missing teeth cause bone atrophy, some patients with advanced atrophy may not have enough bone volume to hold the implant in place. A strong at-home oral care routine is necessary to keep the teeth — and implants — healthy and free from decay-causing plaque and tartar.
Dental Implants in Danvers, MA
Dental implants are a surefire way to overhaul your gapped smile and give you a look you love — along with properly functioning teeth. An implant can replace a single tooth, several teeth in a row, or even an entire arch of missing teeth with an implant-supported denture. These dentures stand out from their traditional counterparts because they are non-removable and permanent, eliminating the need to soak them while you sleep or add any extra steps to your daily oral care routine.
