Dental implants have had a considerable impact on modern dentistry – offering a highly viable solution to replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth that is placed, or implanted, into your jaw where a dental crown is then capped on top for a complete tooth that looks and even feels like a real tooth.
Dental implants can replace:
- A single tooth
- Multiple teeth
- All of your teeth (implant dentures)
Simply, dental implants are small titanium cylinders that are inserted into the jaw to replace the roots of missing teeth. After a period of healing, a porcelain or gold crown is cemented over the implant. Dental implants allow patients to smile, chew and function normally. Although you have a number of restorative options for the treatment of missing teeth, none have proven to be as effective and durable as implants. In many cases, dental implants may be the only sound choice for the replacement of missing teeth and supporting structures. People who have lost teeth often feel too self-conscious to smile, talk, and chew naturally. This can lead to secondary health problems like malnutrition and a low self-esteem. Regardless of the nature of problems related to tooth loss, dental implants provide a simple solution and the results are proven.
