Dental Implants in San Antonio


What Are Dental Implants

Dental implants are not exactly a new technology, but their popularity has increased in recent years because of their ability to restore oral health while simultaneously providing a beautiful, natural-looking smile that is also permanent. This page will explain what they do and how they work.

Advanced Techniques Put A New You Within Reach

When implants arrived on the dental scene more than two decades ago, the good news was that they gave new hope to a lot of people who had given up on their teeth. The bad news was they required drilling up to two dozen holes in your mouth. Fortunately, dental implants have come a long way thanks to advances in procedures and techniques. Get to know these products and see how they can revitalize your life.

The Anatomy of Dental Implants


What Makes Up a Dental Implant

Dental Implants 101: The Post

The post is a medical-grade titanium screw that serves as a root for your new teeth. The advantages of medical-grade titanium are that it doesn’t corrode and it has properties that help it fuse permanently with human bones. As an added bonus, modern dental implants now only require four posts to restore an entire arch.



Dental Implant Crown

Dental Implants 101: The Crown

The crown is the part of the tooth that you can see. It’s usually made of porcelain and is also fully customizable so you can design your perfect new smile. It’s also strong enough to allow you to bite into an apple or an ear of corn.



Dental Implant Abutment

Dental Implants 101: The Abutment

The abutment is what holds the post and crown together. The connection created by the abutment reinforces the post and crown, making them even stronger and permanent (but removable by a doctor). The best part is that these begin supporting your new teeth the same day as your surgery.
