The advancement in medical science has also ushered advancement in the field of dentistry as well. Dental implants are by far the most advanced and versatile replacement options in the field of dentistry.
The natural tooth structure is divided into two major portions.
The first portion is the crown of the tooth; this is the white part of the tooth that is visible to us in the mouth.
The second portion is part of the tooth which is anchored to the bone of the jaws, which is known as the root.
Implants by definition are prosthesis that use inert materials to be surgically embedded into the bone in the area of the missing tooth, with the intention of it being able to mimic the root of the tooth over which a prosthetic natural looking crown will take support.
