Dental Implants never get decay

What is a dental implant?

Let’s start with a few basics. Every natural tooth in your mouth has two primary parts, one visible and one hidden (but very important). The visible part is the crown, the white enamel-covered portion which you commonly call your tooth. But an equally important part of a tooth is its “root”, the part of the tooth under the surface of your gums, which supports and connects the tooth into the jaw bone.

Nugent DDS Dentist

A dental implant replaces the root with a titanium cylinder. Dental implants became possible with the discovery in the 1960’s that a titanium screw, inserted into bone became fused to that bone.  This fusion-induced stability (osseointegration) allows a tooth’s crown (the visible part) to later be placed on the dental implant, looking and functioning almost identically to a natural tooth

A fully restored dental implant has three parts. The three parts of a dental implant are the titanium dental implant, abutment and the crown.



Why are dental implants recommended replacements for missing teeth?

A dental implant with an abutment and crown placed on it looks, functions and feels just like your own natural tooth. With good patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime.
