Implant dentistry is the most advanced therapy available to replace missing teeth. Dental implants may offer you important advantages compared to the other treatment options: improved dental health, enhanced appearance, greater self confidence and a better quality of life.
Have you lost single or multiple teeth or you have lost all your teeth? There is no need to worry. Dental implant treatment is regarded as the ‘gold standard’ for replacing a missing tooth or teeth and offers many advantages which may improve quality of life and give self confidence. A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal. It is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is attached to the implant. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place.
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. They are made up of very high grade titanium screws.
Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
If you’ve lost teeth due to trauma or periodontal disease, it may still be possible to replace them with dental implants. There are so many advantages to replacing one or all of your missing teeth with dental implants that this treatment has become the therapy of choice. Even if you’ve lost supporting bone, many times it’s possible to use a bone graft to restore the bone and then place the implants later.
