Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they fuse with your natural bone. They are then used as a support for a restoration (crown or bridge). A connector (abutment) is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support the restoration. A crown or bridge is then fabricated to fit over the abutment and match your bite and tooth color. When performed by a trained and experienced dental implant dentist, dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry. At Norwood Park Dentistry we work with a select group of specialists and coordinate your care to achieve an optimal, long lasting result.
