They can be used as an alternative to traditional removable dentures, but feel more secure and function better. An implant consists of two basic parts, the implant which is surgically anchored under the gum and directly into the bone. The implant becomes the anchor for the visible part to the new tooth and, in essence, replaces the root of the original tooth, which has been removed. An abatement is then placed over the anchor. Our implant dentist then tops the anchor with a crown, which is the visible part of the tooth. Implants can also be used to support bridges and full or partial dentures instead of individual crowns.
