Dental implants are made of two primary parts, with an abutment (connector) in between.
An implant’s titanium post mimics a tooth’s root. It is a small, biocompatible component surgically inserted into the socket left by a missing tooth root. Bone tissue naturally bonds with the post to re-create a solid anchor in the jaw on which a tooth or teeth will attach.
On top of one dental implant post, I can attach a single replacement tooth. To secure a denture, a few posts are required, and various systems are avialable. Fitzgerald Dental Implant Center contracts with what we consider to be reputable dental labs with ceramists who create high quality restorations. We’ll work with the lab so that your replacement tooth or teeth look natural, fit comfortably, and are designed to withstand the workout they’ll endure every day.
