Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Missing teeth can cause problems from impaired eating to jaw bone loss. Dental implant are posts which are inserted into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. They are designed to provide the new foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
A person who has previously lost their teeth regains the ability to have significantly better chewing power. They can smile with confidence, knowing that their teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. A significant benefit of dental implants is that they provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable prosthetics and normally can last a life-time with good oral hygiene and maintenance.
