A dental implant can be used to replace a missing tooth. By substituting the root of the missing tooth, it prevents further serious complications that can arise if the missing tooth is left untreated.
First, the site is prepared for the implant.
Next, the implant body is placed into the bone.
Next, the base of your new tooth -- called the abutment -- is placed into the implant body. A crown is then cemented onto the abutment.
Your tooth is now restored to optimal shape and function.
