A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement and is used in prosthetic dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. Dental implants look and feel exactly like natural teeth also are appropriate for almost anyone who is currently missing teeth or is at risk of losing teeth.The benefits are improved aesthetics, the ability to eat comfortably as well as a clean, healthy oral environment for the patient.
These artificial roots are available in different sizes and shape to best suit the patientsí» needs.
Ideal ranges of application for implant are as follows :
-to replace one missing tooth, there is no need for grinding the adjacent teeth.
-to replace several missing teeth to avoid removable denture.
-to give a permanent solution in the case of total tooth loss, to prevent bone atrophy instead of using a non-stable denture.
You are not a good candidate for implants if you have severe heart disease, not treated diabetes or currently taking certain medicines.
