Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Dental implants enables one to have fixed/permanent teeth, it is a manmade replacement of natural teeth .Your dentist Dr.Sujith Pandiaraj BDS,decides the type of implant for each patient as each one has different requirement and condition of teeth. The first step in a dental implant is to take an x-ray which gives us a clear picture of the amount of bones left in the mouth, after that we decide the type of implant to be done.
Dental implants are anchors placed in bone, usually made from titanium or titanium alloy. They can support dental restorations which replace missing teeth. Some restorative applications include supporting crowns, bridges, or dental prostheses. With a track record of being reliable and long lasting dental implants also prevent healthy teeth from shifting, allow you to eat and talk normally, and they also help retain your natural face shape.
Dental implants are artificial teeth or prostheses that are inserted in place of one or more missing natural teeth, in some cases the whole set. A metal ‘root’ is inserted into the jawbone and bonds with the existing bone; an artificial tooth known as a ‘crown’ is then attached to the root via a connecting piece (‘abutment’). Dental implants are surrounded by natural bone and gum tissue and are generally considered as a better alternative to dentures or tooth supported bridges, especially if the surrounding teeth may already be weakened by large fillings or previous disease of the ligaments and jaw bone.
