Implants

For years, physicians have used various types of implants to replace damaged body parts such as hip joints. Today modern dentistry can replace missing teeth in much the same way. In fact, thousands of patients have had missing teeth replaced using dental implants.

A dental implant is simply an artificial device, designed to replace the root portion of a missing tooth. They are surgically placed into the underlying jawbone of the mouth. The implant is then allowed sufficient time to permanently attach itself to the jawbone after which time an artificial tooth or crown is attached.

Once the procedure has been completed and provided proper oral hygiene is maintained, an implant can last indefinitely. An implant can give the patient a result that is the next best thing to having their own natural tooth.

Different techniques allow dental implants to be used to replace either one missing tooth or more than one tooth. Dental implants can also be used to firmly secure dentures or whole rows of artificial teeth that normally suffer from a degree of movement and discomfort.

Implant recipients need to have healthy gums, sufficient bone structure in the jaw, and good oral hygiene habits.
