What are dental Implants?

Dental Implants in Delaware are quickly becoming the most desired means of replacing missing teeth, and for a good reason! There is no other dental treatment in Georgetown that is as close to a natural tooth as a dental implant. A dental implant is comprised of 3 parts:

  • A titanium rod that actually attaches to the jaw bone like a natural tooth root would.
  • An “abutment” or part that serves to attach a crown to the implant
    the crown itself.
  • The titanium rod that your periodontist in Sussex County surgically places in your bone has small holes in it that your bone grows through to create a strong, natural bond. This process is called “osteointegration” and takes about 3 months to complete. It results in an attachment that is strong – just like a real tooth root.
