What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a restorative dental device that is designed to replace a missing natural tooth. Unlike other restorative dental treatments like bridges and dentures that sit on top of your jaw, dental implants replace your missing tooth root. 

Dental implants are made up of several different components that together create a durable, high-quality tooth replacement option. The base of a dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone beneath the gum line. This titanium post provides a stable, secure foundation for the dental implant and keeps it anchored firmly in the jawbone.

The titanium dental implant post is attached to a small connector piece called an abutment. The abutment is used to attach the porcelain dental crown to the dental implant. This crown is the part of the dental implant that is visible above the gum line, and functions as a natural tooth would so you can eat and speak properly.

Our dental team is highly experienced in placing dental implants in Blacklick, OH. To learn more about our procedures, give us a call! 

Why Should I Fill the Space Left by a Missing Tooth?

It's important to replace a lost tooth even if the space isn't visible or isn't causing any problems. 
When a tooth is lost, the other teeth in your mouth respond to that missing tooth. Without tooth roots to support the jawbone and hold your other teeth in place, your jawbone may start to shrink, and your remaining teeth can begin to shift.

To maintain the integrity of your jaw and your smile as a whole, you need a natural or artificial tooth in every single tooth “slot” in your mouth.
