Dental implants work to simulate the original structure of a lost tooth. They are made up of two main parts: the post and the prosthesis. The post is a metal screw that is surgically placed in your jaw and simulates the root of the tooth, preserving the structure of your smile and preventing loss of bone in the jaw.
The prosthesis is the part of the implant that looks and acts like the surface of the tooth. This can be a crown for a single tooth, a bridge for multiple teeth next to each other or even a partial denture for numerous teeth. Whatever kind of prosthesis you receive, they are all permanent can last for a lifetime, restoring your ability to chew and smile for years to come.
