    How do dental implants work?

    smile beauty teethLet’s say you have a damaged or decayed tooth. It needs to be removed, which means both the visible part of the tooth, called the crown, and the root are lost.Implants can be used to replace an individual tooth. Implants can also support a bridge or denture to keep multiple teeth secure.

    Key takeaways:

    • Dental implants are the next best thing to having your own teeth, as they look and feel natural.
    • Implants can replace a single tooth, several teeth or all your teeth.
    • A dental implant can make dentures more secure, so they are like your natural teeth.

    The dental implant, typically made of titanium, serves as the replacement for the tooth root – the very foundation of a natural tooth. Because it is placed in the jawbone and fuses with your natural bone, the dental implant forms a sturdy base for your replacement teeth.
