Implants are a way of replacing single or multiple teeth without utilizing adjacent teeth. Implants are titanium screws which are impregnated with bone regeneration. Which are placed in the area where your missing tooth’s root used to be. This implant is then to integrate or fuse to your bone. A crown/crowns are then placed on top of the implant/implants.
Implants can also attach to dentures to help those with little bone levels, keeping their dentures from "floating around", and can drastically improve quality of life in seniors.
In certain circumstances when not enough bone is present, bone grafting is performed to enhance the thickness of bone. Bone material is packed at the donor site and covered with a membrane, and allowed to grow with your body to allow future implant placement.
