Are you missing one or more permanent teeth? Do you want to have an attractive, fully functional smile once again? Ask Dr. Jing Yang how a dental implant in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, can help your smile.

What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a restoration that replaces both the root and the crown of a missing tooth. Dental implants are made up three parts: a titanium screw, a dental crown, and an abutment. The titanium screw, also called an implant, is placed into the jawbone, where it fuses with the bone. In this way, the dental implant becomes a permanent part of your smile. The porcelain dental crown is placed on top of the implant screw. The abutment connects these two pieces.

What are the advantages of dental implants?
There are many advantages to choosing dental implants for your smile. Dental implants:

– Do not require the alteration of healthy teeth
– Restore the ability to eat and speak properly
– Restore the beauty of your smile
– Are very durable and can last for years, or even a lifetime
– Can restore your ability to eat and speak properly
