A dental implant is a titanium alloy post that is designed to act as the root of your tooth. They are placed in the jawbone for effective support of fixed bridges, crowns, or dentures. This firm support will allow you to eat and speak more easily and comfortably. Since titanium is a light metal and has the ability to bond with bone and create long lasting support, dental implants are made of this metal. They can easily replace your missing tooth and prevent bone disintegration.
HOW DO DENTAL IMPLANTS WORK?
Dental implants are a great solution for people who have missing, broken, or chipped off teeth. A dental implant is a titanium root replacement that provides firm and comfortable support after being installed in your mouth. As they help your bridges, dentures, or tooth replacements solidify, the new dental structures do not have to completely depend on the surrounding teeth for stability. This will restore the natural health of your remaining teeth and tissues. They prevent the skin around your missing tooth from shrinking, which would otherwise give an aging look to your face.
Dental implants are often recommended in the following cases:
- Missing Teeth: Replaced with porcelain crowns supported by dental implants
- Partial Dentures/Complete Denture : supported by dental implants
