A dental implant is an artificial tooth root and is used in prosthetic dentistry to support restorations including a tooth or group of teeth. Dental implants are an option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
What Dental Implants Can Do?
Replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth.
Support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture.
Provide support for a denture, making it more secure.
Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.
