Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth due to their ability to integrate into bone. They can be placed into the maxilla (upper jaw) and mandible (lower jaw) to act as anchorage for fixed or removable dental prostheses.
An implant crown can be used to replace a single missing tooth. The implant is placed into the jaw and a crown restoration is fabricated and placed on top of the implant. These restorations can be made to look very natural.
Multiple implants can be used to support a prosthesis that replaces many missing teeth. The implants are placed in strategic locations to optimize function and aesthetics. A prosthesis can then be placed on top of the implants restoring the missing teeth.
