An implant can replace a missing tooth and still with have the look and feel of your own natural tooth! Replacing missing teeth can have a positive influence on your quality of life.
An implant is a medical device (made of metal alloys well tolerated by the body) that replaces the root portion of a tooth. It is a strong cylindrical post that is placed below the gums and into the bone.
This serves as an anchor for an artificial tooth (usually a crown). It can replace a single tooth or several teeth. Because it is anchored in your bone it has the feel, stability and function of a natural tooth.
Dental implants can also be used to help stabilize a denture. It can make a denture much easier to wear and eat with.
