Implant Vs. Dentures
Dental implants are the preferred treatment over traditional dentures at Oregon Periodontics, P.C.. Dentures and dental implants assume the same goal but approach is very differently.
The Basic Structure of Implants
Dental implants are made with a very body-friendly material called titanium. This metal integrates with the bone, which allows the dental implant to stay locked in place and begins to function exactly like a real tooth root would. The middle part of the dental implant is called the abutment, which provides a place for the crown to sit. And the crown is what sits on the abutment and looks and functions just like a real tooth.
The Differences Between Dental Implants, Dentures and Bridges:
Dental implants from Dr. Henshaw are like getting your own teeth back. Call us today for a dental implants consultation.
