A dental implant is a small titanium cylinder that replaces the root of a tooth. It is surgically inserted into the bone of the jaw. An artificial tooth or crown is attached to the implant. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth or many teeth with no need to damage healthy teeth to hold the bridge. Even edentulous patients can benefit from dentures that are clipped or screwed over implants.
If you have lost one or many teeth, you can eventually have them replace with implants. Imagine having artificial teeth firmly anchored in your jaw .They are more esthetic and more durable then other conventional method of teeth replacement and function just like natural teeth without sacrificing neighboring teeth just like with a fixed bridge.
