Did you know that dental implants have been used to replace teeth for over 30 years? Titanium dental implants act as artificial tooth roots. When a dental implant is placed into the jaw, the bone naturally integrates with the implant, much like a titanium knee or hip replacement. At this point, the doctor can attach an “abutment” that screws into the dental implant and protrudes out of your gum tissue. On the “abutment,” the doctor can then attach either a new tooth (crown), or if there are no teeth, your denture can either “Snap” onto (Snap-in Denture) or screw into (All-on-X) the abutments!
