Dental Implants: What You Need To Know

Dental implants are the most significant dental innovation of our generation.  Dental implants are comprised of three parts-a post, a crown and an abutment-that work together to “permanently” replace missing teeth.  The implants themselves are screw-shaped titanium “fixtures” that are placed in the jaw bone to replace the roots of teeth.  The bone fuses to the titanium “fixture” with a very strong bond, allowing for a solid foundation for the new replacement crown.

Dental implants can also help save your jaw bone.  When a tooth is lost, the lack of stimulation that a tooth provided causes the jaw bone to begin to dissolve.  Because implants fuse to the jaw bone, they stabilize and stimulate the jaw and allow it to maintain its dimension and density.  Almost anyone missing one or more teeth can be a candidate for dental implants.  Dental implants are “permanent” and are as close to replacing a natural tooth as you can possibly get.

If you are wondering if you are a candidate for Dental Implants, don’t delay any longer, call today to schedule your Dental Implants Courtesy Consultation with Dr. Rebecca Castaneda. At
