Annapolis dental implants serve as permanent teeth and can replace one tooth, several teeth or a full mouthful of teeth. They can be used as an alternative to traditional removable dentures, but feel more secure and function better. An implant consists of two basic parts, the implant which is surgically anchored under the gum and directly into the bone. The implant becomes the anchor for the visible part to the new tooth and, in essence, replaces the root of the original tooth, which has been removed. The implant is then topped by a crown, which is the visible part of the tooth. Implants can also be used to support bridges and full or partial dentures instead of individual crowns. Some of the newest implant techniques, such as Immediate Implant Placing and Immediate Loading, where the tooth is placed on the implant on the same day that the implant is placed can significantly shorten the time needed for the whole process from that of older traditional dental implant techniques.
