How Exactly Do Tooth Implants In Mohegan Lake, NY Work?
Tooth implants are considered to be a gold standard tooth replacement option for many reasons. No matter if patients get treated with single dental implants or full mouth dental implants, all tooth implant options can restore a patient’s smile for years to come. Tooth implants can restore a patient’s smile in so many ways because of the parts that compose them and the way they are accurately placed in the patient’s mouth.
Specifically, tooth implants are composed of three main parts: the dental implant post, the abutment, and the tooth crown (prosthesis). The dental implant post is made to act like a natural tooth root. When the dental implant post is strategically angled and placed in the patient’s jawbone, it stimulates it like a natural tooth root would.
The stimulation from the dental implant post keeps the patient’s jawbone strong and healthy. Once the dental implant post has securely fused (osseointegrated) with the patient’s jawbone, it will become a permanent part of their smile. The abutment is what attaches the dental implant post to the tooth crown.
The tooth crowns color, shape, and size are custom designed to look natural in the patient’s smile. Once the tooth crown has been securely attached and bonded to the abutment, the patient will have a beautiful, functional, and healthy new smile. With custom-made tooth implants, patients will be able to maintain a normal diet, speak clearly, and smile confidently. Tooth implants work to improve the patient’s quality of life.
