Implants are the closest replacement thing to a natural tooth. It is a titanium screw, which is surgically placed into the jaw bone. They resemble artificial root and the crown.
Once implants are placed, it bonds with the surrounding bone. It has three parts, implant body, abutment and crown.
The abutment connects the implant with the crowns. If you are considering implants, you must have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant.
If your bone is too thin or soft and unable to support an implant, you may require a bone graft.
Consequently, if there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw or the sinuses are too close to the jaw, you may require a sinus lift.
