A dental implant is a permanent solution to a missing tooth. It is a titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone with an abutment and crown on top of it. Dental Implants are cared for just like your natural teeth and are an esthetically pleasing solution to a missing tooth or mulitiple teeth.
How are dental implants different than dentures?
Dentures, or partial dentures, are a removable set of teeth that need to be taken out of the mouth daily and cared for in a special manner. They can often feel bulky and are difficult to get used to. Dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth that can be cared for just like natural teeth.
