What is an Implant ?

Implants

A dental implant is a metal anchor, which acts as a substitute to a natural tooth root. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root (titanium screw) that places into your jaw bone,to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.It is surgically placed into the jawbone and small posts (abutments) are then attached to the implants which protrude through the gums. These abutments provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.

Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. The dentist will uncover the implant and attach a small healing collar to shape the gums correctly. An impression is taken, from which the laboratory can fabricate a closely-fitting post. The post is then connected to the implant. Finally, a tooth replacement is made and fitted over the post.

The entire procedure usually takes about six months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.

For most patients, the placement of a dental implant involves two surgical procedures.

Dental Implants are the best tooth replacement system. Dental implants are an ideal option for people who have lost one tooth,more than one or all of their teeth.

Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling; you may even forget you ever lost a tooth. You know that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally. Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Maybe your dentures don’t feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, there is good news!
