How can dental implants help with proper teeth replacement?
Dental implants are placed and secured in the jawbone to replace the missing tooth. An abutment, or a special device is then placed on the screw of the implant; afterwards, a replacement crown implant is then attached to the installed root. Dental implants that are made of high quality porcelain are always the best choice for replacement teeth. The implant is composed of a crown that’s molded to look and feel like the natural enamel coating of the teeth. In order to differentiate the implant from the dental crown, the implant is placed to replace the root of the affected teeth, while the dental crown replaces the entire structure of the missing tooth. When the dental implant and the crown are attached as one, they will look like natural teeth.
