Post - Abutment - Crown

Post – Abutment – Crown

Dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth. An implant is a titanium post implanted into the bone of the jaw to anchor a crown, bridge, or denture. The implant connects to an abutment that anchors a porcelain crown, bridge, or denture.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Implants improve your ability to comfortably chew food.
  • Implants reduce the strain on healthy teeth.
  • Implants will help you retain the contour of your face, by preserving your jawbone.
  • Dental hygiene is easier with implants than with dentures.
  • Dental implants allow you to smile with confidence.

Types of Dental Implants

  • Titanium post and crown
  • A bridge
  • Mini implants
  • All on four
  • Teeth in an hour

A titanium post and porcelain crown is the preferred solution for replacing a single tooth that is damaged or decayed and requires an extraction.

A bridge consists of one or more implants and two or more porcelain crowns and is required to replace multiple teeth that have been extracted.

A mini implant may be required when regular dental implants are not a workable solution. Mini implants are typically used to support dentures or to assist with orthodontic treatment.

All on four is a procedure that allows a fixed bridge supported by only four dental implants to be placed at the same day that your teeth are removed.
