WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
A dental implant is an artificial substitute for the root portion of a natural tooth and is anchored into a socket to support a crown.
The goal is to achieve a close contact between the implant and the bone tissue so they can “fuse” together, creating a stable support for the new tooth.
There are a number of options for the treatment of missing teeth; none have proven to be as effective and durable as implants. Dental implants are sometimes the only logical choice for the restoration of necessary teeth as they leave remaining teeth intact.
Strong, durable and natural in appearance, implants are among the most successful dental procedures performed (95% success with the right after care). People who have lost teeth might feel too self-conscious to smile or talk. Additionally, tooth loss can have a negative effect on eating habits and this can lead to health problems like malnutrition.
