An implant is a metal post that is surgically placed into the jaw, functioning as a tooth’s root. Once the implant post heals, which will take several months, the crown is placed to complete the implant process. Implants are the best option for replacing a tooth because it helps to maintain bone thickness and height. It also makes it easier to maintain proper oral hygiene because it is much easier to floss and clean since it recreates a single tooth.
