A Full, Complete Smile
When you need to replace a tooth, a dental implant is a great option. Implants are made to take the place of a tooth after it has been lost, so you can fully restore your smile. Not only does it replace the top of the top of the tooth, but the tooth’s root as well. Find out more by calling 850-934-3408 and see how a dental implant can benefit you!
What Is a Dental Implant?
An implant is a kind of prosthetic tooth. It is made of three main parts: the post, which simulates the root of the tooth, the abutment, which firmly connects each part of the implant, and the restoration, usually a dental crown, which acts as the visible and functional part of the tooth.
The post of the implant is anchored into the jawbone, so patients never have to worry about their new tooth falling out. These posts are generally made of biocompatible titanium and are perfectly safe and hygienic. The post acts like the root of the tooth and stimulates the jawbone, preventing the bone loss prevalent in nearly every other restoration option.
Once the post has fused with the jaw, an abutment can be placed. This is usually made of a similar material to the post and often looks like a small tooth, creating the ideal base for a crown or bridge to be placed. This procedure is straightforward and can commonly be completed in a single visit with local anesthesia. The abutment lies beneath the gum line and helps protect your body against the bacteria in your mouth.
Once the abutment is completely healed, the final restoration (or prosthesis) can be placed. To complete your dental implant, our dentist can provide you with full, long-lasting dental crowns, dentures or bridges that will completely blend in with your smile. Your smile will look great and function normally, and as long as you take care of your restoration, it will last for years to come!
