Dental implants are small
titanium posts that are surgically placed in the patients jaw to
facilitate the permanent replacement of a missing tooth or teeth. A
dental implant designed to replace a single tooth is composed of three
- the titanium implant that fuses with the jawbone;
- the abutment, which fits over the portion of the implant that
protrudes from the gum line; and
- the crown, which is created by a prosthodontist or restorative
dentist and fitted onto the abutment for a natural appearance.
Implants can be used to replace individually missing teeth, or as
permanent anchors for partial or complete dentures.
Professional Dental Arts works closely with our doctors using
products and manufacturers that they are familiar with to ensure the
implant process results in superior outcomes for their patients.
