Dental Implants are a great advancement in dentistry as they permanently replace missing teeth in a way that no previous dental technique was able to accomplish. A dental implant is a permanent artificial tooth that is the next best thing to your natural tooth, without the risk of decay!
Dental implants are anchors made of titanium, that are implanted directly into the jaw bone. The bone heals around the implant quite rapidly, and then a cap or denture is screwed on to the anchor. The dental implant is stronger than a natural tooth root and the artificial denture will never require a root canal or filling.
An implant will help maintain the health and shape of the bone in the jaw area, and neighboring teeth do not need to be filed down to make room for it, as with other cosmetic dentistry procedures. When done successfully, a dental implant will result in a comfortable and natural-looking tooth, thereby providing a permanent solution for a missing tooth.
