Dental implants replace missing teeth and restore the look of your smile. Implants can be used to support a single dental crown or more complex restorations such as a bridge or denture. Implants can also help prevent the bone loss in your jaws that can result when a tooth is lost.
How implants work
The dental implant is an artificial tooth root made from titanium. It is surgically placed in your jawbone in the spot where the replacement tooth is going to be placed. The titanium bonds easily with your bone, so as the area around the implant heals, the bone integrates with the implant to form a strong permanent bond. Once the implant has healed, it can be used to support a crown or other restoration.
