How would you like to eat without restrictions? With dental implants, you never have to worry about how your teeth look or wonder if they’re going to come out or slide around. And unlike dentures, you’ll never have to remove your implants for cleaning. That’s because dental implants are securely attached to your smile.
With dental implants, you can relax and enjoy a good meal. This healthy and convenient smile restoration will preserve your smile and restore your self-esteem. Dr. Cederbaum has 30 years experience in cosmetic dentistry and she’s also studied implant placement at the renowned Misch International Implant Institute.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a revolutionary way to fill the gaps caused by having one or more missing teeth. Instead of just sitting on top of your gumline the way dentures do, dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone. Through a process known as osseointegration, your implants become integrated with your jaw and form a secure bond the same way your natural teeth do.
Over time, your bones develop around and connect to the biocompatible titanium base of the implant. By stimulating healthy bone development, dental implants prevent jawbone deterioration. Neither dentures nor dental bridges will protect your jawbone from deterioration the way dental implants do.
The titanium base of your implant is known as the implant fixture. On top of the fixture is the implant abutment. This is the middle section of the implant which attaches the fixture to the implant crown. The implant crown is made of porcelain, a durable and attractive material that’s custom-designed to blend in with your smile. This is the only part of the implant that your friends will see.
