Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or a number of teeth. Implant supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth, they preserve the integrity of a facial structure and improve the look and function of a jaw. Once the screw-like fixture is safe, a dentist will screw in an actual implant that is made to look and replace natural tooth.
Naturally, there are many benefits of dental implants. The benefits of implant treatment include improved appearance and self-esteem as well the enhanced ability to chew and enjoy your food, and often protection of your remaining teeth and jawbone.
Dental implants are the effective replacement for lost teeth. As anchors in the jawbone, dental implants form a stable foundation for permanent attachment of the crown; grinding of adjacent teeth does not take place, and loss of bone tissue by atrophy is prevented, since implants, as “artificial dental roots”, transmit the chewing forces into the jawbone. A single implant as root substitute is the most elegant way of achieving a cosmetically ideal closure of the gap. In completely edentulous jaws, dental implants are a secure fixation method for removable full dentures and so spare the patients the usual disadvantages of conventional “false teeth”.
