In recent years we have seen dental implants popularity increase because of their ability to restore oral health while simultaneously providing a beautiful, natural-looking smile that is also permanent. There are many different types of Dental Implants that we can help you with here at Mandarin Dental Professionals.
The crown is the part of the tooth that is visible. The crown is usually made of porcelain and is also entirely customizable so you can design your perfect new smile. It's also durable enough to allow you to bite into an ear of corn or an apple.
The implant is a medical-grade titanium post that serves as a root for your new teeth. The advantages of medical-grade titanium are that it doesn’t corrode and it has properties that help it fuse permanently with human bones. This is the same material that make up artificial hips and knees. As an added advantage, modern dental implants now only require four to six implants to rebuild an entire arch.
The abutment is what holds the implant and crown together. The connection created by the abutment reinforces the crown and implant, making them stronger and more permanent. Even though they are fixed, they can be removed by a doctor.
As you explore your options regarding Dental Implants, it is important to keep in mind that dental implants are a lifetime investment. Quality treatment with a Dental Practice you trust should largely outweigh any minor differences in price.
The most important thing you can do for your failing or missing teeth is to understand your options and the condition of your existing teeth. Knowing this will allow you to understand what is available for you to solve your dental issue.
At Mandarin Dental Professionals we will work with you to obtain the imaging needed to evaluate your current dental condition, develop a personalize treatment plan and analyze the cost of delivering the dental implants that will enhance your smile and condition.
