A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal. It is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is attached to the implant or the implant acts as an anchor to hold the complete denture in place.
Dental Implants can be used to:
- Replace one or more missing teeth without cutting down neighbouring teeth
- Restore the ability to chew and speak confidently
- Restore a person’s facial support and self esteem by making them look younger
- Support a bridge or denture, making them secure and comfortable.
