Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed, replacement teeth. Dental implants are the most popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth. Because they fit, feel and function like natural teeth. It's definitely a serious treatment which takes a lot of technology and skill. Dr Khlevnoy installs implants for more than 25 years and use only highest quality materials for best results.

What makes dental implants feel completely comfortable and secure? PDX Smile Design uses a medical-grade titanium implant fixture that, over time, actually fuses to the living bone cells of the jaw. Dental implants consist of three parts:

  • The implant: A screw that serves as a root for your new teeth. It permanently attaches to your jaw.
  • The abutment: A permanent, but removable by your doctor, connector that supports and holds a tooth or set of teeth.
  • The crown: This is the part of the tooth that you can see. It’s usually made of zirconium or porcelain for durability and good looks. They look absolutely the same as a natural tooth.

You can use dental implants to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or a full upper and/or lower set of teeth. If you need to restore a full arch, you may use the all-on-four treatment. It's when the whole arch of 4 teeth is installed in one time.
