A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural tooth root which is placed in the jaw bone in the position where a missing tooth used to be. The main aim when placing an implant is to achieve immediate close contact with the surrounding bone. This creates an initial stability, which over time is steadily enhanced by further growth of bone into the microscopic roughness on the implant surface. In order to replace missing teeth, dental implants have some form of internal screw thread or post space that allows a variety of components to be fitted.
Once fitted, these components provide the foundation for long-term support of crowns, bridges or dentures.
