Implants are designed to replace one or more missing teeth or secure a dental bridge or denture with stability similar to natural teeth. Once a titanium implant is placed securely in the bone, the implant coating integrates with the bone. Once bonded a crown can be placed on the implant. Unlike dentures, they are not removable, and unlike bridge, they do not require healthy tooth enamel to be shaved off. As permanent prosthetic appliances, dental implant serve both a restorative and cosmetic function.
A dental implant will help keep the surrounding teeth from shifting and improve your bite.
