Replacing a missing tooth using a prosthetic one would be the best way to restore oral aesthetics and functionality. But, making sure the prosthetic tooth is secure, stable, and aesthetically pleasing is essential. All these factors are satisfied with dental implants.
A dental implant comprises a metal stud, preferably Titanium, and a ceramic crown that looks just like a natural tooth. The metal stud would be inserted into the jawbone and acts as the tooth root. It has screw-like grooves on its surface, which help to hold it firmly in place. A ceramic crown would be fitted to it using a connecting element, called the abutment, and dental adhesives. Together, an implant forms the perfect tooth replacement solution.
