A dental implant is an artificial tooth that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge directly without taking the support of the adjacent teeth. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth due to unavoidable circumstance.
In common terms, a dental implant is a small titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. It is available in various sizes and thickness for different clinical situations. The implant is placed in the bone where jaw accepts the implants and bone formation or osseointegration takes place around the titanium screw. Thus giving implants the feel and look of a natural teeth.

Dental Implants may be used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are advanced alternative for conventional bridgework. Implants eliminate the need of preparing the adjacent healthy teeth and do not place additional loads on the teeth supporting the bridge.

  • In case of completely edentulous (no teeth) patients, implants supported fixed bridges can completely eliminate the need of dentures. Implant options are much more comfortable than conventional dentures because there is no slipping or movement of teeth , giving a more natural feeling and thus improves self confidence of the wearer.
  • Now your loose or ill fitting dentures will no longer be a problem as implant supported dentures can fix or stabilize your prosthesis directly into the jaw making you much more comfortable and easy while you wear them.
