What does a polydentate ligand allow us to do? What is its function?

Polydentate ligands have more than one atom which is able to form a bond to a central atom. For instance, EDTA is a polydentate ligand which has six atoms with electron pairs that can be used to bond to a central metal atom.

You can bond multiple atoms.
