Dental Implants are small bio-compatible medical grade titanium posts that are placed in your jaw to serve as a replacement tooth root. The implant supports the connector and the crown, bridge or full set of teeth.
Compared to bridges, partials or dentures, implants feel, fit and function more like natural teeth. Implants have become the most popular solution for missing teeth.

Here is a visual diagram of the common implant components:
Crown – This is the replacement for your natural tooth or teeth. It is made tooth color and is usually screwed or cemented to the abutment for a secure fit
Abutment – this is the connector piece that allows connection from your implant to your new teeth or set of teeth
Implant – Small, bio-compatible, medical grade titanium posts (fixtures) that are placed in your jaw to serve as a replacement tooth root.
Why is it that implants have become the comfortable and secure choice for tooth replacement? The answer is simply biology. Because dental implants are made of medical grade titanium with a special surface treatment, your bone cells grow into and fuse to the dental implant. This fusion (Osseointegration) gives your implant team the ability to provide you with teeth that don’t slip, slide or fall out at inappropriate times. It makes no difference if you are replacing one, multiple teeth or all of your teeth, dental implants give you a natural long lasting solution to replacing those missing or failing teeth.
