A dental implant is designed to replace your entire tooth, including the tooth root, to give you a stable, long-lasting solution for your missing tooth. Implants may be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or an entire arch of teeth.
There are two main parts to a dental implant — the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post is a small screw that is surgically inserted into the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the tooth root and performs all the same functions in stimulating the supporting bone tissue and helping your teeth and implant remain stable in your mouth. The implant restoration caps the post, replacing the visible portions of the missing tooth and completing your treatment. Depending on your needs, the implant restoration could be a single crown, a bridge, or a complete or partial denture.
Replacing missing teeth is key to maintaining optimal health, function and appearance. As implants are designed to look, feel and function exactly like your natural teeth, they are considered the ideal replacement option. When properly cared for with good oral hygiene and regular preventive care from a dentist, your implant can last a lifetime.
