Following you will find the answers to some commonly asked questions regarding dental implants:
What exactly is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a three part appliance that replaces a missing tooth or missing teeth. The first phase involves surgical placement of an implant into your jawbone which mimics the root of a natural tooth. The second phase is called an abutment, and is a coupling piece between the implant and the restoration. The third phase, the restoration, is a custom fabricated restoration which gives the implant the appearance of a tooth. Together, these parts make up a dental implant.
Can I get a dental implant?
Candidacy for dental implants by Elmhurst dentists at Kopp Dental basically involves being healthy and having adequate bony support for the implant. Sometimes, jawbone must be augmented to give additional support to the implant. Most patients seeking tooth replacement are eligible candidates for dental implant placement!
