After remarkable advances in dentistry in recent years, dental implants have become the treatment of choice for people missing one, a few, or all of their teeth, and for those with failing teeth or severe gum disease. Dental implants look and perform more like natural teeth. They are anchored in the jaw, just like teeth, so there is no artificial plastic on the roof of the mouth and the need for adhesives and denture creams is eliminated. More importantly, the use of dental implants does not impact healthy adjacent teeth.
Dental implants are long-lasting tooth root replacements that are implanted into your jaw to simulate the root of a pre-existing tooth. Replacement teeth are then restored on to the implant, returning you to a confident smile. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants don’t move or shift and they can last a lifetime.
A dental implant designed to replace a single tooth is composed of three parts: the small titanium screw that fuses into the jaw; the abutment, which forms a small post protruding above the gum line; and the tooth shaped porcelain crown, providing a natural appearance
