Learn About Dental Implants
Dental implants are the solution of choice for the treatment of one or more missing teeth and for those about to lose teeth due to decay or severe periodontal disease. By definition, a dental implant is an artificial, self-sustaining tooth-root that is inserted into the jawbone and acts as an anchor to support a replacement tooth or teeth. Dental implants have a success rate of over 95% and can often last a lifetime with proper dental hygiene and regularly scheduled dental visits. They keep adjacent teeth healthy and maintain the structure of your jawbone.
A dental implant is made up of three parts: a titanium base implant (replacing the tooth root) that joins with the jawbone, an abutment connected to the titanium implant which protrudes from the gum line, and a crown resembling a natural tooth which is placed onto the abutment, forming a natural-looking, artificial tooth.
If you are missing all or most of your teeth on the upper or lower arch, Dr. Brueggen can use four dental implants on one or both arches to support a full set of new teeth. Learn more about All-on-Four dental implants.
