what are dental implants?
implants are fixtures like artificial roots, created to
replace missing or lost teeth for any reason, capable to integrate
into your mouth to the point of living together healthily and
completely natural with the rest of the tissues.
Currently, they are manufactured preferably and chemically of pure titanium and act as replacement for tooth roots. After their placement into the maxilla or mandible, they serve to (once they are osseointegrated) give support to the new artificial teeth that will be joined to them.
Each dental implant, serves as artificial root on which the crown or dental prosthesis will settle and over it, we can distinguish them like the natural teeth.
Implant or dental implant attachment (portion that is under the gum)
Pillar abutment (fixing portion emerges in the mouth)
Crown or prosthesis (covering the pillar and is noticeable in mouth)
