Implant supported bridge

What Are Dental Implants ?

A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails. Just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone.

Dental Implants are artificial tooth roots. Holes are made into the jaw bones and the artificial roots are placed and covered over. The implants then heal and integrate with the jaw. After healing an artificial top (abutment) is placed into the implant and crowns, bridges and attachments for dentures can be placed. Implants can be used to replace individual missing teeth and to replace several missing teeth.Patient with full dentures, especially lower full dentures that are more difficult to wear can benefit from implants. The implants can act as anchors to keep the denture in place in the mouth.
