Dental implant is a tooth-like replacement for a missing tooth in your mouth. It is a Titanium-based metal screw which is shaped like a natural root. The material itself is highly biocompatible and implants come in different sizes & designs to match the missing tooth dimensions.
The implant is first placed by the dentist within the jaw bone beneath the gums & will soon get integrated to become fixed just like a natural tooth is. In the next phase, the dentist will connect the crown portion to the implant to give you a life-like replacement. Best part of this treatment is that it does not involve the adjacent natural good teeth to replace the missing one. You thus get an implant as a tooth in place of a missing tooth!
