Dental Implant for a Single Tooth
A dental implant is made of three parts:
The dental implant, the abutment, and the dental crown. The dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jaw bone (not as bad as it sounds). Typically, a dental implant will need three to six months to heal completely. During this time, Dr. Guerra may fit you for a temporary dental restoration.
Once the dental implant fuses into the jaw bone, Dr. Guerra will attach your custom made abutment. The abutment is the connector between the dental implant and the dental crown. Impressions of the teeth are taken to create a custom-designed dental crown.
Once the dental crown is fabricated, Dr. Guerra will remove the temporary restoration and carefully secure your dental crown to the abutment. In the end, patients will have a natural looking, beautiful solution for their missing teeth. Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
