Dental Implants

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.

Implants are substitutes for lost teeth. In this procedure we need not cut down the teeth either side for crowns to support the bridge.
Designed for toothless areas, this treatment involves implanting artificial dental roots made of titanium which is a special metal to the jaw bone for a natural feel as well as aesthetic satisfaction. This is safe and a better alternative to the existing bridge or denture. Placing an implant requires a small operation. It is carried out under local anesthesia, the same that is given for removal of teeth. Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant supported bridges or denture. They can also be used as anchorage for orthodontic tooth movement. The use of dental implants permits unidirectional tooth movement without reciprocal action.
