A tooth Implant is a prosthetic replacement for a missing tooth. natural teeth consist of the crown and the root. The crown is the visible section that is covered with white enamel. Supporting the crown is the tooth root which extends into the jawbone. The root is the part of the tooth that is effectively replaced by an implant.
There are commonly three parts to what is described as an implant:
1.- The implant divide itself ( which is inserted directly into the bone by Dr. Mauricio Hervas in Miracle Smile Dentistry, Coral Gables)
2.- The piece that connect the implant device to the third part the overlying crown or Denture ( which is represent the cosmetic and final part of which is done by Dr. Anna Aller in Miracle Smile Dentistry, Coral Gables)
Today implants are predominantly made of titanium, a metal that is bio-compatible and offers straight and durability as well as unique property that allows it to fuse directly to bone. The process knows as osseointegration. Other materials such as zirconium, might be used to make implants in the future. But know these materials have not been perfected for general use.
