How Do Dental Implants Work?
The implant process consists of several parts:
-The placement of implant serves as the root of the tooth.
-The abutment that attaches to the implant and extends to support the replacement tooth.
-The crown made of porcelain or zirconia is the part that looks like a tooth. This is screwed or cemented onto the abutment.
-The time frame for the whole process depends on many factors. However, when you come to your Wellington, Royal Palm Beach, FL dentist, she will review the specifics of your case.

Types of Implants
Various types of implants include full upper and lower, anterior, posterior, and single-tooth:
Full upper replacements - The upper set of teeth is replaced with implants.
Anterior replacement - Implants are used to replace the front teeth (also called incisors and cuspids).
Full lower replacement - The lower set of teeth is replaced with dental implants. Full lower replacement usually only uses four to six implants (near the front), which are used to anchor a denture. This obviates the need for denture adhesive.
Posterior replacement - Implants are used to replace the bicuspids and molars (the back teeth).
Single tooth replacement - Implants can be the fix to one missing tooth without harming the neighboring health teeth.
Is Dental Implant Surgery Painful?
Most people find dental implant procedures very easy to tolerate. Any post-operative discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen.
