An implant is the replacement of the natural tooth root with a titanium cylinder which heals within the existing bone. It is strong and can serve as the base for many different types of restorations.
Patients with missing teeth can have one or more teeth built upon the implant(s) with crowns or fixed bridges. Those patients without any teeth can have attachments added to the implant in order to secure a denture or partial denture which is very cosmetic as well.
In some special cases, severe trauma cases can be restored using an implant attached prosthesis which replaces missing facial features.
