A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the bone to replicate a natural tooth root. An abutment and crown are then attached on top of the implant to take the place of the tooth.
Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. There are numerous reasons why people prefer implants, including overall look and feel, and the longevity of the results. Implants also offer more stability because they fuse to your bone, a process called osseointegration (os-e-o-in-tuh-GRAY-shun). Integration of the implants allow for a more secure and accurate fit compared to other methods of restoration, thus making them more comfortable for the patient.
