About the Implant Procedure
An implant is basically an artificial tooth root. It is a screw-like device that is placed in the jawbone. This device is made from titanium, a biocompatible substance. Over time the natural bone fuses to the implant. An abutment is attached to the implant. This is the part of the implant that holds the crown. A crown made of porcelain or zirconium is seated on the abutment. The completed procedure looks and feels like a natural tooth.
Some patients may need to have a bone graft in order to have a successful implant. Others have sturdy, healthy bone, that is dense enough to permit an implant that will not require a more drawn out procedure. A thorough exam with x-rays to analyze the bone density will be needed in order to determine the type of single tooth implant that will work best for you.
There are several considerations that go into the decision of whether or not a patient is a good candidate for the implant procedure. Health issues, bone density and oral health are factors in the decision. Contact Ora Dental Implant Studio, and schedule an appointment for an exam and consultation to find out if you are a good candidate for this procedure.
