Dental implants are the only solution that replaces the entire tooth, from the root up. Other treatments only replace the visible part of the tooth, so the surrounding teeth eventually shift, causing uncomfortable complications.
Dental implants consist of three pieces: the implant, the abutment, and the crown. The implant is a small screw inserted into the jawbone under local anesthesia. As the jaw heals, it fuses to the implant, creating a sturdy foundation. The abutment is a small piece that attaches to the implant and the crown, which replaces the top of the tooth.
Once healed, the replacement tooth is indistinguishable from your own natural teeth. They are cleaned the same and have the same functions.
