Dental implants are a revolutionary phenomenon in the field of dentistry and they help you instantly replace your missing teeth or stabilize your dentures. Since time immemorial, people with broken or missing teeth had to depend on dentures, bridges and other removable appliances. But thanks to dental implants, now you can eat comfortably whenever you wish to. High-quality teeth implants perfectly match your natural teeth, enhances your ability to eat and speak normally and assures you a beautiful and bright smile.
Dental implants have been around in dentistry since 1965 and over the last few decades, they have become a widely accepted treatment solution. A dental implant is basically an artificial replacement for roots of a tooth. These implants are placed in the jawbone and are almost invisible once they have been surgically placed.
Dental implants can help secure crowns, bridgework and dentures and are made of a lightweight, biocompatible material known as Titanium. Titanium is also widely used to make other bone implants such as orthopaedic joint replacements. Titanium fuses to the bone through a process called Osseointegration which ensures that dental implant procedures have high success rates.
When you lose or break teeth, the bone that supported the tooth also suffers a loss to some extent. Dental implants prevent this loss by stabilizing the bone. Apart from acting as a replacement for lost teeth, implants keep your jawbone intact, in terms of shape and density. They support your facial skeleton and also add a degree of support to your soft tissue structures like gums, cheeks and lips. These implants, therefore, ensure that you can eat, chew, smile, talk and look completely natural.
