What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a replacement tooth root that is placed surgically into the jawbone as a foundation for the root of a missing tooth. The implant is a titanium screw that replaces the root thus acting as an "artificial tooth root" which fuses with the jawbone. It takes several weeks for the post to bond with the natural bone. Implant surgery, when performed by an experienced dentist is proven to be one of the safest procedures in dentistry.

Advantages of Dental Implants

  • Enhanced oral health : Implants match the natural tooth anatomy . It also fills the space left by missing teeth hence reducing the risk of gum disease.
  • Durability : Implants are low maintenance when compared to Dentures. The oral care routine is same as before. Implants do not fall off or get damaged. Dentures, on the other hand need to be cleaned every day and are not as durable as Implants.
  • Improved appearance : With implants, there is no issue of teeth dislodging in case another tooth falls out. Your appearance improves because of the unaltered dental structure.
