The Many Benefits of Dental Implants

Adults in America have an average of three or more teeth that are missing or in need of replacement, according to the latest data from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research. Dental implants provide a permanent option for replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is made up of three parts: The post, which is permanently attached to the jawbone for stability; an abutment, which is a screw that connects the post to the replacement tooth; and the crown, which is a replica of your missing tooth. Dental implants offer many benefits and advantages over other options such as dentures or bridges.
