A Fresh Start After Losing A Tooth

Winston-Salem Permanent Tooth ReplacementHave you had a tooth extracted? If it was bothering you, it may have been a relief. Now, though, you have an unsightly gap in your smile. A dental implant from Winston-Salem Dental Group can fix it.

A dental implant is a permanent replacement for all parts of the tooth. It is composed of three parts: the titanium post, the abutment, and the restoration.

The Titanium Post

  • Inserted directly into the jaw bone
  • Extremely strong
  • Titanium is unique in that it bonds with living bone tissue

The Abutment

  • Can be made of gold, porcelain or titanium
  • Permanently attached to the post (it will not slip and slide like dentures)

The Restoration (Crown)

  • Usually made of porcelain fused to a metal alloy (PFM)
  • Is made to match the color of surrounding teeth
  • Will look as good or better than the tooth it replaced

Dental implant surgery is not an experimental treatment. The innovative materials and techniques have been tested and refined for several decades.
