DENTAL IMPLANTSPosted on : 27 Oct, 2015
Today, dental implants are the best option for replacing missing teeth. Implants look and feel extremely close to that of natural teeth, and unlike bridges and false teeth, they last for a life time.
They are used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or an entire arch. They can be used in young people as well as persons with advanced age. It is a highly successful technique that has improved the quality of life for many people because of their natural feel, function and look.
An implant is made up of a titanium post that is surgically placed beneath a patients gum. The implant remains below the gum and eventually fuses to the bone of the jaw to provide a stable, highly secure structure for the replacement tooth. The replacement tooth is actually a porcelain crown that is eventually secured to the implant.
