Front Tooth ImplantBookmark this
Your front teeth are quite vulnerable to dental injuries, and dentists frequently need to treat patients who have knocked out or damaged a front tooth by accident or during sporting activities. You can also lose front teeth because of infection and decay. The loss of any tooth is unpleasant, but losing a front tooth is particularly upsetting for many people because we frequently draw much of our self-esteem and self-confidence from appearance.
What is a Dental Implant?
Very briefly, a dental implant artificially restores the entire tooth, consisting of a small post or screw which is made from titanium alloy or zirconia, and which is surgically inserted into the jawbone.
The implant post integrates with the jawbone during a process called osseointegration and which takes about three months to complete. Once osseointegration is finished, an abutment is attached to the post and protrudes just above the gumline. The abutment supports the implant crown.
