DISCOVER DENTAL IMPLANTS
A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant supported replacement teeth, you'll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food) and both have a "root" that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw.
The difference is that the implant is made of titanium - the same time tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints.
