What do implants do?
A modern dental implant is the best option for replacing a missing tooth. They secure a dental crown to your jaw making them more secure and realistic than ever before. An implant is essentially an artificial tooth root. Implants can be used to replace one or multiple teeth.
The technology and quality of implants have drastically improved, making them more accessible and more affordable. It is surgically implanted into the jawbone. Our bodies then integrate into the implant by cells growing around and attaching to the biocompatible metal. Once this process is complete, an abutment is placed into the implant and a crown then goes on top of the abutment. Dentures and partials can also attach to implants to give more retention to the prosthesis in the mouth.
