Implant Dentistry

Missing a tooth doesn’t only present aesthetic problems; it can also impact your overall dental health. When there’s a gap in your smile, you are at an increased risk of developing a gum infection. Furthermore, the remainder of your teeth can move out of position without something to take up the space of the missing tooth. If you have lost a tooth, 5th Ave Dental is proud to offer a solution with high-quality dental implants in Boca Raton, FL.

What is a Dental Implant?

The term dental implant refers to an artificial tooth root inserted in the place of a missing tooth. However, when most people think of a dental implant, they think of the entire restoration, including an abutment and a dental crown that looks and functions like a natural tooth.

What Does Each Part of a Dental Implant Do?

What we envision as a dental implant is made from three components:

  • The Post: A metallic, screw-like column that is inserted into your jawbone where it will fuse and function as a tooth root. The post holds the rest of the implant in place and provides stimulation to the jawbone.
  • The Abutment: Another metallic component that is both a base and connector between the post and the dental crown.
  • The Crown: A prosthetic tooth made from a tooth-colored material. The crown is the only visible part of an implant, and it works just like a natural tooth.
