Dental Implants in Delray Beach, FL

Salutations! Welcome to Dr. Smile More’ dental implant blog! At our practice, we advocate the placement of dental implants as a complete and permanent teeth replacement option because of the many important oral health benefits that they can provide. Millions of Americans suffer from untreated tooth loss and have diminished self-confidence as a result. Fortunately, Dr. Ross has been restoring smiles and lifestyles since 1987 with the truly remarkable results of dental implants! Read on to learn about some of the basics of dental implants!

Parts of a Dental Implant

A dental implant is comprised of a small titanium screw-like insert that is surgically embedded directly into the gum tissue and the jawbone of the recipient.  There are actually a few parts to the entire assembly of the dental implant:

  • Dental Implant:The entire structure of dental implants are made from titanium (alloy) and are surgically implanted below the gum line into the anatomy of the jawbone. These implants serve to replace the tooth roots of lost or damaged teeth.
  • Abutment Screw:The next part of a dental implant is the abutment screw that will be used to attach the replacement tooth to the dental implant. These screws are precision manufactured to have minute tolerances in order to minimize areas where oral bacteria can collect and proliferate.
  • Replacement Teeth: Dr. Ross contracts with one of the nation’s leading providers of incredibly lifelike and durable replacement teeth to adorn dental implants. Replacement teeth are carefully matched to the size, shape, and color of your existing dentition or your desired appearance so that they are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
