Dental implants are metal posts that are surgically placed into jaw bones beneath your gums. A dental implants procedure is a dental operation to replace a missing tooth.
How does dental implants procedure work?
Implants are fused to your jawbones, and provide stable support for an artificial tooth. Hence, when eating and speaking, dentures and bridges mounted to implants won’t get slipped in your mouth. This secure fit helps the dentures and bridges feel natural than conventional ordinary bridges. For a single tooth missing, in ordinary bridges, we need to prepare the adjacent tooth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth.
Advantages of Implant
- There is no need to prepare the adjacent teeth to hold the new replacement tooth.
- To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant.
Oral hygiene and regular dental visit are critical to the long-term success of the dental implant.
