At Comfort Dental Care, we are thrilled to offer dental implants in Exton, Pennsylvania. Dr. Santosh Mittal can place both the implant post (which acts as the “root” of the new tooth) and the restoration (which is the cap placed over the post that looks like a normal tooth). To learn more about this service, schedule a consultation with our dentist by calling 610-363-1304 today.
Dental implants are the most reliable and high-tech tooth replacement option out there. Unlike bridges and dentures, implants replace the entire tooth, letting you smile in confidence for years to come.
Implants are made of three key parts:
- The post is made of biocompatible titanium and placed in the jawbone to replace the missing tooth root. This allows it to stimulate the bone and prevent bone loss in the future, a common problem with other restorations.
- The abutment connects the post and the restoration, protecting the implant site from bacteria in the mouth and making sure your implant feels secure and reliable.
- The restoration finishes the implant and acts as the surface of your new tooth or teeth. It can range from a crown to replace a single tooth all the way up to an implant-supported denture to replace an entire arch.
With the right care, your implant can last for life, though you will need to replace the restoration every 10 years or so.
