A dental implant or implants are one of the newest and best advancements modern dentistry has to offer. Implants allow us to replace missing teeth, anchor fixed partial dentures or complete removable dentures, or even allow a person who is wearing complete dentures or is faced with wearing complete dentures to have a complete fixed dentition just like their own natural teeth before they were lost.
When describing a dental implant, the best comparison is to that of a natural tooth. The part of your teeth that you use to chew and that you can see is called the crown of the tooth. This crown is supported by the part of the tooth embedded in bone which is called the root. An implant is basically a replacement for the root of a missing tooth. When placed in your jaw, an implant becomes firmly attached to the bone. The cells in our bone have a strong affinity for the titanium in the implant, and during integration, the implant actually fuses to the bone. Once this process takes place (typically in 6 weeks to 6 months) we can use an attachment to the implant called an abutment to attach a crown, bridge, or denture to the implant.
