Dental Implants

About Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jawbone to support a replacement tooth or bridge. They are an alternative to traditional bridges or dentures and are designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

The implant itself is made of titanium, a biocompatible material that is well-tolerated by the body. It is surgically placed into the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone over time through a process called osseointegration.

Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, an abutment (a small connector piece) is placed on the implant and a replacement tooth, or a bridge, is then attached to the abutment.

Dental implants have several benefits, including:

  • They look and feel like natural teeth.
  • They are permanent and do not need to be removed for cleaning like dentures.
  • They can help prevent bone loss in the jaw by mimicking the root of a natural tooth.
  • They can improve your ability to chew and speak.
  • They can help preserve the shape of your face and can improve your appearance.

The success rate of dental implants is generally high and with proper care, they can last for many years. However, the success of dental implant therapy depends on various factors such as the quality of the jawbone, the overall health status of the individual, smoking and the ability to maintain good oral hygiene.
