Understanding Dental Implants
Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. This is what makes them so appealing to so many patients. Gone are the days of ill-fitted dentures that slip and cause embarrassment. Dental implants are surgically implanted into your jaw bone. Once healed, a dental restoration is secured for a permanent, highly functional and beautiful restorative solution.
While dental implants tend to be more expensive than other missing tooth solutions, it is important to understand the full range of benefits they provide. Choosing dental implants is making an investment in your health and well-being.
3 Parts of the Dental Implants
- Titanium Post- this small screw like structure is surgically implanted into your jaw. This post acts like a prosthetic tooth stabilizing the structure of the jaw and helping to stimulate bone regeneration.
- Abutment- this component sits just below the gum line and will help hold your tooth in place. The abutment holds the restoration in place for a highly functioning tooth and comfortable fit.
- Artificial Tooth- depending on your personal needs you will receive a natural looking and custom fit crown, bridge or denture restoration that will be secured to the abutment. Your artificial restoration will look and function like a natural tooth.
While many dentists will shuffle you around to a variety of specialists, our Woodbridge, VA dentist office handles every step of your dental implant procedure. This helps you save time and money and ensures the quality of your care. Dr. Cavallo is a highly trained and experienced restorative dentist that offers comprehensive and personalized dental care.
