Dental implants replace your natural tooth roots. When you lose a tooth, it is imperative to replace not only the visible part of the tooth (the crown), but the tooth roots as well. This is because the tooth roots preserve the bone in your jaw. When there is no tooth root to support your jawbone, bone resorption occurs. The bone will melt away, or deteriorate. The bone in your jaw can be preserved by placing a dental implant to replace the tooth root. The jawbone will bond with the dental implant, which makes the implant a permanent tooth root replacement. Then the dental implant becomes a strong foundation for biting, eating, speaking, and stimulating the bone to protect the facial structure.
