To help simplify what dental implants are, they typically have three parts:
- Implant: A screw that serves as a root for your new teeth. This is what permanently attaches to your jaw.
- Abutment: A permanent connector that supports and holds a tooth or set of teeth.
- Crown: This is the part of the tooth that you can see. It’s usually made of zirconium or porcelain for durability and good looks.
You can use dental implants to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or a full upper and/or lower set of teeth. If you need to restore a full arch, you may be a perfect candidate for full mouth treatment rehabilitation.
