A dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis. The basis for modern dental implants is a biologic process called osseointegration where the dental implant forms an intimate bond to bone.
Single Tooth Replacement
When only a single implant is needed, a fixture is placed and the prosthetics are made for the individual tooth.
An implant-supported bridge is a viable option for multiple missing teeth. The bridge connects the prosthetics to one another and ensures stability.
