What are tooth implants?
Dental implants exist for over 30 years now. They allow you to experience the closest thing to natural teeth. The articifial tooth is custom made to match your own teeth. If you wouldn't know you have dental implants you would never know you had a tooth implant.
Dental Implants procedure
A dental implant is the base for placing artificial teeth. You can see them as a strong founded replacement root. To restore your teeth the artificial tooth needs to be attached to your jawbone. The tooth implant makes this happen. A dental crown is placed upon the dental implant. Because the crown is custom made it will always fit perfectly.
The tooth implant procedure starts with setting up an indiviudalized treatment plan. This plan is a roadmap for the best possible dental care and results. The second step is placement of the titanium root implant. The implant is placed into the bone. After six to twelve weeks the jawbone is completly healed. The titanium implant is now a sturdy base. On top of the base abutment is placed. The abutment connects the new artificial tooth to the dental implant.
The artificial tooth, better know as a dental crown, is custom made to perfectly fit and match your teeth. By making a model of your complete teeth the dental team know how the crown needs to be shaped. When the crown is placed onto the tooth implant you will forget you ever lost a tooth.
