A dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of your jaw or skull to support dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, or facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.
Dental implants help you look and feel better by replacing your missing or chipped teeth. A major benefit to dental implants is that they also preserve bone and prevent further deterioration of your facial structure.
The risk and complication you may experience when you have dental implants includes pain. Swelling, and prolonged bleeding due to surgery.
