Replace A Missing Tooth
A dental implant is a screw-like anchor that is used as an artificial replacement for natural tooth roots.
Implants are made of materials that are compatible with the human body, such as titanium. By attaching to the jawbone and gum tissue, they provide a stable base for artificial replacement teeth, such as dental crowns, bridges and dentures.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or several teeth, or to support partial or full dentures. Implants and crowns remain inside the mouth and do not require any adhesives to hold them in place.
