Dental implants are usually cylindrical/tapered in shape and fabricated from titanium and are used to replace missing tooth/teeth in the jaw. It consists of a few parts, namely the fixture(root) abutment (connector) and the crown (tooth). At the moment, a dental implant is a popular choice for replacing a missing tooth or several teeth, and sometimes even to replace the entire dentition.
Dental implants are the best choice as they look and feel like natural teeth, and when done properly will serve as teeth replacement for many years to come. They do not move or slide like dentures do, and what’s best is they maintain the bone mass that usually shrinks when a tooth is lost in the jaw which may change your appearance as well.
