A dental implant is a titanium screw that acts as an artificial root in the jaw bone to support a replacement tooth, bridge, or denture.
What are the components of a dental implant?
There are three parts to a dental implant.
1. The body (implant screw) which acts as the artificial root
2. The abutment, which connects the implant screw to the crown
3. The implant crown
During your exam, Dr. Passamano will determine if you are a good candidate for implants. Proper bone level and general good health are important to the success of dental implants.
