Losing your teeth can be a disheartening experience. Unfortunately, with the widespread nature of dental health issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, and others, teeth loss can affect anyone. Luckily, losing your teeth is not the end of things; it is possible to replace them using various dental devices. At The Dentists at North Cypress, we offer several tooth replacement solutions, top among them being dental implants.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial teeth that are used to replace missing teeth. The implants feature an artificial root (titanium or zirconia frame) and a prosthetic crown shaped just like a natural tooth and usually made of ceramic. The implants can either be permanent or removable.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants work just like the natural teeth, with the only difference being that they are artificial. The root (metal frame) is surgically implanted into the jawbone, where it fuses with it. As a result, it offers strong support for the crown, just like the root of a natural tooth.
The crown, on the other hand, is made of a strong ceramic material and is shaped just like your teeth, thus making it almost indistinguishable from the other natural teeth. A connector (abutment) is used to connect the crown to the metal post, which offers a strong and secure fitting.
