What are Dental Implants?

A high-end approach to tooth restoration.

Missing a tooth can be a traumatic experience for anyone and can cause real problems for your dental health. As an expert in dental implantology, Dr. Silc…Learn more about our dentist… can provide implant solutions that allow you to enjoy your smile and your lifestyle once again. So what are dental implants?

A dental implant is a non-removable restoration that acts as our secure foundation to crowns, bridges, or dentures. An implant consists of three elements:

1. Post

The main part of the implant is a synthetic titanium root that fuses with your jaw bone.

2. Abutment

This acts as the attachment for your new custom-made restoration.

Placed on top of the implant, this could be a dental crown, bridge or a set of dentures.

Placement

The first step when placing an implant involves Dr. Silc inserting the post into your jawbone. After the implant has fused with your bone, the abutment can be placed, and the restoration fitted.

Single Tooth Implants

If you are missing one tooth, a single tooth dental implant could effortlessly solve your problem. Commonly topped with a dental crown, these implants look and function just like your natural tooth root.

After your implant is placed, you’ll be able to speak, chew, and laugh as if nothing ever happened. Also, because only a single tooth needs to be replaced, your surrounding natural teeth will be fully preserved, and your oral health restored.
