Dental Implants

A dental implant is a mechanical structure that mimics the function of the natural root of the tooth. The single implant anchors a crown that functions like the natural tooth crown. During the implantation procedure, the dental clinician inserts the implant into the jawbone. The clinician then caps the implant with an artificial crown that is custom-made according to the patient’s (your) anatomy. Together, the dental implant and crown function as the natural tooth does; in chewing, talking, and of course, smiling. Multiple implants can be used to support other variety of teeth-implants configurations to help replace multiple missing teeth or teeth gums and bone.
