3 Things You Can Do To Help Your Dental Implant Be Successful
Dental implants are used to minimize the negative effects of tooth loss. Unlike other artificial teeth, dental implants mimic the outer structure of an entire natural tooth. For instance, the implant, which is a titanium screw, is embedded into the jawbone of the patient-- just as a natural root is. This allows the implant to offer a level of stable support that is unmatched by other tooth replacement devices. The implant is topped by a dental crown that is connected to the surgically implanted screw by an abutment.
