Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth generally used to support the crowns, dentures, or bridges that are used to restore spans of teeth. An implant is typically made of titanium, which is one of the most corrosion-resistant metals. The titanium implant is then surgically fixed inside the jaw bone. Once the implants are biologically accepted by your body, the root-like device is then used to attach dental restoration devices that can aesthetically replicate a single tooth or a group of missing teeth.
DENTAL IMPLANTS are artificial object that simulates a tooth root and is placed surgically into the jaw bone and serves as an anchor or foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth.
Losing one or more teeth in the mouth leads to an inability to chew properly and a gap in your smile which also leads to bone loss. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants restores that confidence in your smile and ability to chew and enjoy any food you like. The best part is you can achieve this without compromising adjacent healthy teeth.
The dental implant is the closest & best way of replacing the tooth that was lost. Any other way of replacing the tooth will definitely compromise adjacent teeth or bone or gum condition etc over a period.
Removable teeth (Removable Partial Dentures) used to replace missing teeth are not a fixed option and over time bone loss happens in such a way that fixed options like implants will be difficult to do at a later date unless aggressive bone grafting surgical procedures are done.
Although, the bridge is a fixed option it compromises adjacent teeth by grinding them into small shapes to hold the bridge. The extra load of the bridge adds extra force on grinding teeth and even they become loose over a few years which has to be removed over a period of 6-10 years.
