An implant restoration consists of three parts:
- The Dental Implant
A dental implant is a small, sturdy, titanium post that is placed into the jaw. It acts as the root structure would for a natural tooth. We use Straumann implants, which are scientifically and technically superior implant systems.
- The Abutment
The abutment or post is an attachment which connects the dental implant (on the lower part of the post) to a crown (on the upper part of the post). The post will not be visible once the crown is fitted onto it.
- The Crown
A replacement tooth called a crown is created and placed on to the post. If several teeth are missing, a bridge or denture can be placed on the implant posts. All our crowns and bridges are made to match your natural teeth and are extremely hard wearing.
