Dental Implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into a patient's jawbone to support permanent replacement teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants never need to be
removed for cleaning, and they allow for more comfortable eating and speaking.
What is a Dental Implant?
An implant is an artificial tooth which looks and feels like a real tooth.
An artificial root, made from titanium replaces the root of a missing natural tooth. It can be placed in either the upper or lower jaw and will bond with bone after a period of time. Dental implants can be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. It is the best option available in dentistry to replace missing teeth. The implant will generally be placed by a specialist, such as a periodontist or oral surgeon, and we work on restoring the teeth to the imlplants.
Also, if you have problems with loose dentures, implants can be used to stop movement and make your dentures more comfortable, secure and effective.
