What are Dental Implants?

Consider a natural tooth—it comprises a root and a crown. When comparing natural teeth with implant-supported replacements, you’ll find they share the same fundamental structure. Both possess a visible crown used for chewing and a root that secures the tooth beneath the gum and within the jawbone.

Now, here’s the distinction: implants are crafted from titanium, a material widely trusted in surgical procedures such as artificial joint replacements. Losing a tooth means losing both the crown and the root. To restore the tooth, the surgeon begins by replacing the root with a small dental implant. It’s a meticulous process that ensures the tooth’s stability and functionality are restored effectively.
