Every tooth is made up of a crown and a root (or several roots).
The crown of the tooth is the part that is visible in the mouth and the root anchors the tooth into the jawbone. When you lose a tooth, you need to replace the crown and root. A dental implant replaces the root component of a tooth. In some cases, it may be necessary to grow missing bone or gum tissue prior to the placement of your dental implant for aesthetic and functional reasons.

Dental Implant Procedure
You can get long-term aesthetic and functional results when you replace a single tooth with a dental implant in Detroit.
By choosing an implant replacement instead of a bridge or partial denture, you help to preserve the condition of healthy adjacent teeth by eliminating the need to grind down healthy adjacent teeth or use clasps for support. Your dental implant can stimulate bone and gum tissue while preventing future bone loss over time.
When several adjacent teeth are missing, an implant-supported bridge is an excellent way to replace them. The bridge is attached to two or more implants and supported by implants placed in key positions to allow for equal stress distribution during chewing. How many implants are required will depend on factors such as the quantity and quality of existing bone, your bite, and other anatomical factors.
