Dental Implant

What is Dental Implant ?

A dental implant is a structure that replaces a missing tooth.  It is a surgical procedure where the jawbone is allowed to fuse with the bone. A dental implant is needed for those who have lost at least one or more teeth and can even replace dentures with implants.

A device called an abutment connects the artificial tooth to the dental implants.
