Dental implants are typically made up of three different parts: the implant fixture, the abutment, and the restoration tooth. These three pieces work together to provide our patients with replacement teeth that function and feel just like natural teeth.
If you wait too long to restore your missing teeth with dental implants, it is possible that you may develop jawbone deterioration. Luckily, bone grafting can be performed, restoring your jawbone back to a point where it can support implants.
When a patient fails to restore their missing teeth, they are opening themselves up to conditions such as gum disease and tooth decay. Luckily, dental implants can be used to restore these missing teeth.
Recently, professional golfer Tiger Woods lost one of his front teeth during a trip to Italy. Luckily, a dental implant can be used to replace that missing tooth with a beautiful and functional restoration tooth.
