What is a Dental Implant? - Dr. Kenn Kakosian Explains!

Last updated 7 years ago

A Dental Implant recreates the anatomy and function of a natural tooth. It typically features a post, which goes into the bone and acts as the root for the implant.

Implants can be used for many reasons:

  • Supporting replacements, such as, bridges, crowns, etc.
  • Fill in for a single missing tooth
  • Stabilizing the jawbone

By anchoring the implant to the jaw, it integrates into the bones, and gives the jawbone a "purpose" and stimulus to prevent deterioration.

For more information regarding dental implants, reach out to Dr. Kenn Kakosian located conveniently in Manhattan!
