Dental implants are artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw usually made from titanium used to support one or more false teeth. Dental implants are for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, failure of endodontics, an injury or some other reason.
Dental implants are intimately connected with the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth. Most people who have received dental implants say that there is very little discomfort involved in the procedure. Local anesthesia can be used during the procedure and most patients report that implants involve less pain than a tooth extraction.
Dental implants are indicated as treatment option for:
· Replacing a Single Tooth: If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it.
· Replacing Several Teeth: If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them.
· Replacing All of Your Teeth: If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them.
Dental implants require the same care as real teeth, including brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups.
