Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth. There are generally three components involved in a dental implant: the implant post, the abutment, and the implant crown. The implant post is usually placed during a relatively minor surgical procedure done by an oral surgeon or periodontist. When healing is complete, the doctors and staff at Prairie Dental Associates will restore the implant with a custom abutment and an implant crown. Our Atlantis custom abutments are specially designed to replicate your natural tooth structure as accurately as possible. Because of this, custom abutments are superior to stock abutments, which are not custom fit to each patient. Come see as at Prairie Dental Associates to discuss the possibility of replacing your missing tooth with a dental implant!
