Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that help restore smiles by replacing missing teeth. The implant consists of the following:
The implant body is a medical-grade titanium screw the dentists at Hallmark Dental surgically implant into your jaw. This screw serves as the foundation of your dental implant, acting like a natural tooth root.
The abutment is a metal piece the dentists attach to the implant body to secure the dental crown.
The dental crown is the replacement tooth that completes your dental implant. The team at Hallmark Dental customizes your crown to match the rest of your teeth.
The team at Hallmark Dental can use dental implants to replace one tooth or several teeth.
Dental implants are considered the next best thing to your natural teeth and offer many benefits. When you lose a tooth, it changes the structure and function of your jaw, causing jawbone loss that affects how you eat, speak, and look.
By replacing your tooth at the root, dental implants prevent the bone loss that leads to oral health problems. The benefits of dental implants include:
Dental implants are also durable and convenient. Once in place, your dental implant should last the rest of your life.
Schedule a consultation at Hallmark Dental to see if you’re a candidate for dental implants. The team may recommend dental implants if you have missing teeth, healthy gums, and enough jawbone for the implant body.
If you have gum disease or jawbone deterioration, the team can provide dental care to improve oral health for the placement of dental implants in the future.
The team at Hallmark Dental customizes your dental implant plan and reviews the details with you. First, they surgically place the implant into your jawbone. Your jawbone grows around the implant over the next several weeks, securing it in place.
Your dentist at Hallmark Dental attaches the abutment and crown to complete your smile. They may also use a dental implant for a dental bridge.
