Dental implants are an optimal solution for anyone missing one or more teeth. An implant is titanium “tooth root” that is planted in the bone. Titanium is lightweight, strong and biocompatible (it is not rejected by the body) material, that is also used for joints replacement. Like a tooth root, a dental implant is secured in the jawbone and is not visible once placed. After the implant has fused to the bone and the process of healing is completed, a beautiful, matching tooth made of porcelain is attached to timplatn abutment.
Dental implants look, feel, and function closest to that of your natural teeth. They don’t simply fill in the gap; they completely replace the tooth, allowing you to function with them just as you would with your natural tooth.
Dental Implant Benefits
Placing dental implants stabilizes jaw bone. Bone needs stimulation to maintain its form and density. When a tooth is lost, the lack of stimulation causes significant loss of jaw bone. Along with replacing lost teeth, implants help maintain the jawbone’s shape and density. This means they also support the facial skeleton and, indirectly, the soft tissue structures — gum tissues, cheeks and lips.
Implants allow permanently replace one or more teeth without grinding down healthy adjacent teeth. Picture below shows another permanent solution for replacing missing tooth, called bridge.
Dental Implants can stabilize existing dentures
Dental implants can provide support for existing denture, making it more secure and comfortable when it is loose and no longer can keep it firmly in place without the adhesives. Design varies but they all use two to six implants underneath the denture to snap on or clip it into place.
