A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or even a full denture. Dental implants are made of pure titanium, a material that is totally bio compatible (compatible with body tissues) and actually integrates with the surrounding bone and becomes part of the body. Dental implants are an effective, safe and predictable solution to the problems resulting from missing teeth. The best way of permanently replacing a tooth is to fit a dental implant, onto which a ceramic crown is then placed. Implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Main advantage of dental implant over conventional crown and bridge is with dental implants we can avoid cutting of adjacent healthy teeth.
