  • 1. What is a Dental Implant?A dental implant is one option for replacing a tooth. Implants are manufactured devicesthat are placed surgically in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as anchors forreplacement teeth. Implants are made of titanium and other materials that are compatiblewith the human body.An implant-restored tooth consists of several parts.The implant, which is made of titanium, is placed in the upper or lower jawbone.The abutment can be made of titanium, gold or porcelain. It is attached to the implant witha screw. This part connects the implant to the crown.The restoration (the part that looks like a tooth) is a crown, usually made of porcelain fusedto a metal alloy (PFM), but also could be an all-metal or all-porcelain crown. The crown isattached either to the abutment or directly to the implant. It can be screwed or cementedonto the abutment. If the crown is screwed to the abutment, the screw hole will be coveredwith restorative material such as tooth-colored filling material (composite).An implant looks and feels like a natural tooth. It fits securely when you chew and speak. Asingle-tooth implant is a free-standing unit and does not involve treatment to the adjacentteeth. With a dental implants NY, the surrounding teeth can remain untouched if they arehealthy, and their strength and integrity may be maintained. The implant can stabilize yourbite and help prevent problems with the jaw.For more information visit below link: -http://www.manhattannyimplantdentist.com/
