A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts. To replace a missing tooth, an oral surgeon first replaces the root with a dental implant. Time is necessary for bone to heal and grow around the dental implant. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth.
Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. When inadequate space prevents the wisdom teeth from erupting they are called impacted. This indicates their inability to erupt into the proper position for chewing and cleaning.
