What Is a Dental Implant?
A fully restored dental implant has three parts: the actual implant (metal post), the abutment, and the dental restoration (crown).
The implant is the titanium post that goes in the jawbone. It is biocompatible, and integrates into your body. The abutment can be thought of as an anchor that goes on top of the implant, It is the anchor for the actual fake tooth, or dental restoration.
First the implant is placed, then we wait several months for it to integrate into the bone. Then we put on the abutment. Then finally, the dental restoration, or crown, is attached to the abutment. Contact Pure Dental Arts in Seattle if you feel you may need an implant.

Are Dental Implants for me?
Implants are currently the preferred method of replacing missing teeth. They feel and function like natural teeth. The titanium metal root also prevents jawbone deterioration. After the titanium implant has had a chance to integrate completely into the surrounding bone, the next step is the fabrication of an implant crown that matches your mouth in terms of shape, color, and function
