A single tooth dental implant is composed of three parts— the implant (or post), the abutment, and the dental crown.
The Implant: The implants resemble a small titanium screw. The screw is surgically implanted into the jaw bone. Over time the implant will fuse with the jaw bone, creating a stable foundation to support your abutment and dental crown.
The Abutment: The abutment is the connector between the dental implant and the dental crown. Dr. Cavallo will create a custom abutment that fits securely on the dental implant.
The Dental Crown: A dental crown is designed to resemble the natural tooth. Using state of the art technology and high-quality materials, Dr. Cavallo can design a dental crown that is color matched and shaped to match your existing smile.
Our patients have the added benefit of knowing that Dr. Cavallo will oversee all aspects of the dental implant process. Dr. Cavallo performs all aspects of the dental implant procedure in our comfortable Woodbridge, VA facility. To learn more about your options, visit our Woodbridge dental office.
