Dental Implants In Berryville, VA
Why do patients get dental implants?
Dental implants have become one the most predictable and long lasting options available for patients to replace missing or compromised teeth. As opposed to dentures and bridges, it’s the closest thing available to simulate patient’s own tooth/teeth.
What is a dental implant made of?
A dental implant is comprised of three components, an implant body (made of bio compatible titanium), an abutment (a metal piece that is screwed to the implant simulating the part of the tooth sticking out the gum tissue), and a crown (the part simulating the tooth in the mouth). Titanium is the only known metal that can attach permanently to bone.
What is the success rate of getting a dental implant?
With advancement in both materials and techniques, the success rate of implant therapy is now near 98-99%. This is an excellent option for
both single tooth as well as multiple teeth replacement.
