Natural Tooth vs Implant cross section

A dental implant is one option for replacing a missing tooth. Implants have been used for many years. They are man-made "anchors" that look like screws and are made of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. The single tooth implant is placed by surgery in the upper or lower jaw, where it replaces your missing tooth's root(s).

An implant looks and functions like a natural tooth. It fits securely even when you chew and speak. A single tooth implant does not
involve treatment to your other teeth.
