Dental implants are metal posts placed in the jaw bone to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants act like a real tooth root providing a firm base to support crowns and dentures. Dental implants are usually made of surgical grade titanium. Dental implants are strong and lightweight. They allow bone growth and surrounding tissue growth which gives a natural appearance. Dental implant posts stays in place and a crown with adjoining connector is inserted onto the post.
Dental implants have replaced missing teeth since the 60s. Dental implants are used to support crowns replacing a single missing tooth or bridges that restore a span of missing teeth. They also support dentures. Dental implants are made of titanium, a metal known to be compatible with body tissues allowing a bond with adjacent bone during the healing process. Dental implants are safe to use and convenient for replacing lost teeth while looking natural.
Dental implants have a advantages over conventional crowns, bridges and dentures – they look and feel like natural teeth. There are no difficulties with eating or cleaning the teeth – implants function the same way as natural teeth. There is less need for root fillings as healthy adjacent teeth do not have to be filed down to act as supports for any missing tooth or teeth.
