Dental Implants

An implant is an object that is placed or inserted inside the body. It is placed in order to replace a missing part, provide therapy, or assist as a prosthetic material.A dental implant is a root of an artificial tooth. It is fixed into the jawbone and so it can facilitate permanent artificial teeth. Dental implants can support a single artificial tooth or multiple artificial teeth. They are made of dental material like titanium or zirconium.Dental implants (implant) help dental surgeons to restore missing teeth. Unlike dentures or other dental restorations like dental bridges, artificial teeth fixed on top of dental implants are closest to natural teeth.

They provide superior functionality enabling chewing of food and clear speech.Dental implants are fixed into the jawbone with a dental surgery. Once dental implants are firmly fixed, artificial teeth, dentures, or crowns are placed.
