Dental implants are done to permanently replace teeth which are rotten or missing. Implants are made up of titanium metal which lessens the possibilities of any infection.
In single tooth replacement, only one tooth is implanted, followed by the crown prosthesis.
When more than one tooth is implanted it is called multiple tooth replacement. In this procedure, two or more implants are done followed by multiple units of bridges as required by the tooth.
