What is an Implant?

Implant is a titanium cylinder placed in the bone as a root replacement for the missing teeth. The cylinder acts like a root for the tooth. An abutment can be anchored on it and a crown can be placed on the abutment. The replacement prosthetic tooth can be perfectly matched with the original tooth color, giving you a realistic result. Unlike bridges or partial dentures, implants do not alter or damage adjacent teeth. It is a more permanent solution to missing individual teeth than a crown, bridge, or denture is. If you have more than one tooth missing, the implants can also support bridges or dentures.
