What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants is a fancy way of saying artificial replacements teeth which contain artificial roots and all. The implanted tooth can come in a single piece, two piece or three piece variations. The 3 pieces of an implant is known as the root, abutment and crown respectively. 

The root of the implant is made up of titanium and this is what goes into your jaw bone and secures your tooth. The abutment usually comes next as the connecting piece to the crown above. Lastly, the crown tops off the implant, providing you with a functioning, lifelike tooth. The one piece implant is usually made with the crown, abutment and screw fused together while two-three piece implants have the crown and/or abutment separated. 

The implant procedure starts by securing the titanium root to your mouth. The root then fuses with your bone, providing a reliable, sturdy support. These implants are made with the same special surgical grade titanium used in hip, knee and other replacements. If you would like to learn more about how titanium adheres to bone and why is it so biocompatible you can click on the link at the end of the page which will lead to a national library of medicine article that goes into the specifics.
