Not only the ideal replacement method for missing teeth but also a form of both restorative and cosmetic dentistry, dental implants restore the feel and function of teeth while creating an aesthetically natural look. They consist of three parts: a titanium screw that is placed in the jawbone, an abutment that connects the implant to the crown, and the crown – the visible part that looks like a tooth. Since an estimated 125 million Americans are missing a tooth, it is quite fortunate that most people are good candidates for dental implants.
