A dental implant is a restorative procedure used to replace a missing tooth with a prosthesis that resembles natural teeth's shape and color. Implants have three components; a screwlike post made of titanium that serves as a tooth root, an abutment that holds the prosthetic tooth in place, and a dental crown that looks like a real tooth.
Implants can also serve as anchors that sustain more substantial restorative treatment like dental bridges or permanent dentures. Recent advancements to dental science have also made mini dental implants possible, which can be freestanding or work alongside your natural teeth.
You now have the choice to restore your smile with an effective procedure that will leave no trace that your teeth were missing in the first place. Trust the expert hands at Lifeway Dental to deliver undeniable results with our dental implants. Contact us today to learn more!
