Tooth loss has serious social, psychological and emotional consequences, impacting your quality of life, self-image and self-esteem.
In the 1960s scientists discovered that bone loves titanium and will grow into and around titanium. The body’s immune system does not reject titanium. This started the dental implant revolution because it was now possible for natural bone to support artificial teeth.
- Implant– The implant is the artificial tooth root that is inserted into the jaw bone. The implant is made out of titanium.
- Abutment – The abutment serves as the foundation for the crown and is screwed into the implant.
- Crown – The cosmetic porcelain crown is cemented over the abutment to create a tooth that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.
