There are various restorative options available to patients. You can opt for removable dentures, dental crowns, or bridges; however, because dental implants are specifically long term replacements for teeth, this type of surgery is most beneficial for those who want a permanent working fixture.
A dental implant for is comprised of a titanium “foundation” which fuses with part of the jawbone. This in turn connects to what is called the abutment, which allows a crown to be placed on top, with the intention of achieving a natural appearance. This fusion is referred to as “osseointegration” and this phenomenon requires time, so the implant is left to settle within the bone structure for a time, before a follow-up installation of the restorative crowns.

The quality of one’s smile can deteriorate over the years. Since our teeth also serve a very important aesthetic function, cosmetic dentistry has become a quite valuable aspect of modern dental practice. Cosmetic dental work, such as dental implants, can be administered to individuals with broken or missing teeth, as well as those patients who are dealing with less severe concerns such as discolorations, chips, and minor malpositions or rotations.
According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, “statistics show that 69% of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth to an accident, gum disease, a failed root canal or tooth decay. Furthermore, by age 74, 26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth.” A person can lose a tooth or a few teeth for any number of reasons, and therefore a replacement may be the necessary solution to restore the full function of the teeth.
