A dental implant is a post that a dentist inserts into the jawbone. It acts as an artificial tooth root. Once it successfully fuses with the jawbone, the dentist attaches a replacement tooth to the post. The implant acts as an anchor for the replacement tooth, holding it securely in place.
Dental implants are considered the best tooth replacement method available. They are the only tooth replacement option that replicates the entire tooth structure. An implant consists of a root, a connecting abutment, and a dental crown. The root and abutment are made from titanium, making them both biocompatible with the body. The crown works as the visible and functional part of the tooth.
Dental implants are an ideal solution when you have suffered tooth loss. Some of the following characteristics are signs that you might need dental implants:
First, our dentist in Aurora, CO will surgically place one or more dental implants into your jawline. Then, we will place a healing cap onto the implant. The healing cap allows your gums to heal around them and form a strong bond with the dental implant.
Over the next several weeks, your jawbone and gums will heal. During this time, our dentist will monitor your healing through routine checkups. Once it heals, we will place an abutment over it. It will act as a base for the final restoration. We will take impressions for creating a customized dental crown. Once it is ready, we will place it over the abutment, giving you a natural-looking smile.
