An implant can be thought of as a replacement for the root of a missing tooth. It is placed into bone, covered, and then allowed to heal/ integrate with the surrounding bone. After mending, the implant can then be allowed to function with loads applied.
How are dental implants used?
- Implants may be used to support a free-standing crown.
- Implants may be used to support fixed bridgework.
- Implants may be used to help retain a removable appliance (denture or partial).
- Implants may be used to support a full-mouth reconstruction.
