Dental Implants in Florham Park

 

The two main parts of a tooth are the crown and the root. The crown is what is visible in the mouth and the root is what attaches the crown to the bone and holds it in place.

A dental implant is a permanent replacement to replace a crown and root when they are damaged or lost. It is the only treatment procedure in dentistry that actually replaces a missing tooth. The following are some reason for the need for dental implants: 

- replace one or more missing teeth without affecting the adjacent teeth 

- help support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable

- restore chewing, speech, and digestion

- enhance the facial tissues 

Dental implants consist of 3 parts: implant, abutment, and crown. The implant itself is a titanium post that is placed into the bone in the area(s) of the missing teeth. Once the implant is placed it needs to heal, allowing the bone around the implant to recreate a stable structure. The abutment is the transition piece that attaches the crown to the implant. Most of the abutments are screwed into the implant. Finally, the crown is tooth portion that is visible in the mouth and usually gets cemented to the abutment. The entire process requires a numnber of visits over several months. 

Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable. implants should last a lifetime with proper oral hygiene.
