Dental implants are restorative treatments that involve replacing one or more missing teeth, and their roots, with natural-looking artificial teeth. Dental implants are useful to those who are less comfortable as a result of their missing teeth, rendering enjoyable tasks such as eating, chewing, or even smiling into tedious ones.
To avoid complications caused by a missing tooth, such as shifting of teeth or degrading jawbones, Portrait Dental recommends dental implants as a solution. Unlike dental bridges or dental crowns, dental implants are fused into the jaw bone by surgically affixing a metal abutment within it. The abutment, which is rooted in the bone, acts as a strong base for the implant, which is then followed through with a dental crown, which is attached to the abutment. Over the coming month, as the gums and bones heal around the implant, the implant fuses with the surrounding tissues to create a stable base. A crown, which is customized to the shape and shade of your remaining teeth, is attached to the implant to restore your smile.
