Like a natural Tooth
Each natural tooth has a root and a crown. A dental implant follows this model: a crown (usually all ceramic) is built atop an artificial root.
The implant is inserted into your jaw by your dentist or implant surgeon under local anaesthesia on an outpatient basis. In a few months, the implant is firmly rooted in the jawbone. Then the crown is attached to the implant. This prosthesis can actually fully replace a real tooth in both function and aesthetics and can bear the full stress and load of your other teeth. You won't even notice a difference between the implant and your other teeth.
With proper care and regular prophylaxis, an implant treatment can be a solution that lasts for many years. We always recommend quality implants made by European manufacturers that have proven their effectiveness in numerous long-term clinical studies.
