Dental Implant Components
Dental implants provided by our Odessa dentists are composed of three parts: the titanium post, the abutment, and the dental restoration.
Dental implant posts effectively serve as artificial teeth roots, granting a dental implant strength and stability similar to that of a natural, healthy tooth. The implant abutment is the connection between this post and the dental implant restoration. The restoration is the visible tooth replacement, which can range from crowns and bridges to full or partial dentures; a successful restoration will be both strong and esthetically pleasing.
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implant placement is a surgical procedure in which the implant posts are permanently situated into the jaw. While this procedure is often performed by oral surgeons and periodontists, our Odessa dentists are also trained and skilled in performing implant placement.
Over the course of the post-placement healing period, a unique process called osseointegration occurs. The titanium which the posts are made of fuses to the jaw bone, becoming an integral part of the bone. This fusion makes dental implants strong and durable; the fusion also prevents jaw bone resorption.
Once osseointegration has successfully completed, Drs. Diais and Dayeh can then add the dental restoration to the implant.
Dental Implant Restoration
Dental implant restorations are added to the implant post to serve as the replacement tooth or teeth.
Our Odessa dentists are able to build these restorations in their in-office dental laboratory to match your particular bite and teeth replacement needs. Different materials could be used for these implants, but the most popular material is dental porcelain for its restorative and esthetic. The color, visible texture, and feel of this ceramic are all very similar to those of a natural tooth. The result of using porcelain restorations is that you, and anyone else who sees your smile, would most likely not notice the difference between your dental implants and natural teeth.
