A dental implant is a small, cylindrical metal post that is surgically placed into the jawbone to provide a secure anchor for replacement teeth.
An implant is a dental restoration that replaces missing or lost tooth structure with a titanium post. Implants are currently considered to be the most successful and natural-looking way of replacing teeth.
Tooth implants can be made of titanium, porcelain or zirconium. They can also be used to replace more than one tooth in an arch, for example in cases where multiple teeth need to be replaced.
Considerations when choosing an implant:
The type of implant (i.e., abutment, button, ball and socket) and placement (i.e., single or multiple) will depend on the patient’s needs and situation.
Dental implants are designed to provide the best possible replacement for missing teeth or teeth with poor dental health. They are most often made of titanium and are surgically placed into the jawbone.
There are many advantages to dental implants including their ability to help preserve bone and gums, improve chewing function, improve appearance, and improve self-confidence. Dental implant procedures can often be completed in one day with little pain afterward.
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth and restore your smile.
An implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone and allowed to heal for four to six months. The implant will eventually fuse with the bone and feel as if it were a natural tooth.
The process of getting dental implants can be broken down into three steps:
1) First, a dentist will create an opening in your gum where the tooth needs to be replaced. Next, they’ll place an implant into your bone using a surgical procedure called preparation of bone or “osseointegration”
2) Your gums will be stitched back together around the implant
3) Finally, you’ll wait for your jawbone to heal
Dental implants represent an artificial tooth root, which is used as a replacement for the original tooth root.
A dental implant is usually made of titanium and can be threaded to receive a post, crown, or denture. Dental implants are surgically placed by a dentist and require several months to anchor themselves properly.
The use of dental implants has grown significantly over the past few decades and now there are many types and variations for treatment and cosmetic purposes.
