What Is A Dental Implant?
A dental implant typically involves 3 components:
- The Implant: Typically constructed of titanium, the implant is inserted into the jawbone to simulate the root of the tooth. This is the stage that will normally require time for healing through a process called osseointegration, where the surrounding jaw fuses to the implant.
- The Abutment: This is attached to the implant once healing has occurred. The abutment is what the artificial tooth (crown) will be attached to.
- The Tooth: This is typically going to be a crown that is affixed to the abutment. Once the artificial tooth is in place, the process is completed.
This entire process, with many dentists, could take significant time to complete, but with Dr. Matarazzo’s teeth in a day treatment, all of this can be completed in just a single visit! Any necessary extractions will be performed on-site and specially designed implants (requiring precise surgical techniques) which allow for immediate mounting of the artificial tooth (crown) are put into place with excellent skill. If you treat your implant with care and maintain top-notch oral hygiene, an implant could last you a lifetime.
