What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that are strategically placed into the jaw bone. The posts are biocompatible, allowing them to securely fuse with the bone so they can serve as natural tooth roots. The posts are a stable anchor for a porcelain crown, and they keep the jaw bone healthy.
Dental Implants Preserve the Jaw Bone
Quickly after tooth loss, the jaw bone begins to deteriorate through a process called resorption. Once implant posts are placed, bone growth envelopes the posts and regenerates the jaw. This prevents the jaw from shrinking and altering the facial structure of patients. The preservation of bone mass in the jaw is how you can maintain a youthful appearance.
Implants Support A Variety of Restorations
It usually takes about four months for the posts to fully integrate into the bone, and Dr. Harrison can provide you with a temporary crown while you wait. Then your lifelike, lustrous porcelain crown will be attached to the post using an abutment.
Dental implant posts can support different types of prosthetic restorations:
- Porcelain crowns for the replacement of a single tooth.
- Fixed bridges to replace a row of teeth.
- Full arch of prosthetics using permanent dentures.
- Full arch of prosthetics using overdentures, which are removable.
