Dental Implants is a surgical medical component (almost all today implants are root-form osseointegrated implants) that interfaces with the jaw-bone (or skull) to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor for braces. To put in simple words, dental implant is titanium screw (titanium post) which placed into the jawbone to replace missing roots and support artificial tooth or teeth replacement.
Tooth loss can occur as a result of accident or injury (sustained mouth trauma) or disease (gum disease, tooth decay etc.) and aging. A missing tooth can erode self confidence and cause physical discomfort. It can have a negative impact on eating and digestion, speech, and appearance, and may indirectly cause TMD/TMJ and jaw pain as it alters the bite. Tooth loss effects the jaw bone and may cause significant loss of bone tissue. As bone loss continues, the gum tissues gradually recede/decrease. In addition, a missing tooth/teeth can greatly affect how a person feels about their smile and overall appearance.
Dental implants are a safe, effective treatment to address missing teeth and are considered as an alternative to dentures.
Dental implants are a safe, well-established, tried-and-tested treatment and probably best available procedure and solution to missing teeth and best effective alternative to dentures. By maintaining a good oral hygiene and care, dental implants will last for a long time, and like your natural teeth stay for lifetime. Unlike denture, dental implants fix permanently in the jawbone and look like your real teeth, they are as convenient and as easy to clean as your natural teeth. They simulate real teeth in appearance, strength, feel and life.
