What exactly are
Implants have revolutionized the replacement of missing teeth. The brilliant idea came from no other source but mother nature itself! Dental implants replicate the basic anatomy of a tooth, which no other treatment alternative can offer. The implant itself is a titanium screw that replaces the root part of the tooth. It is placed surgically into the jawbone, and then, after a couple of months recovery time, it is topped with a beautifully crafted ceramic crown.
An implant can replace one missing tooth, but as few as four implants can replace all the upper or lower teeth. The number depends on the quality and size of your jawbone. The longer the implant, the fewer implants needed to support the replacement of many teeth.
If you have dentures or are missing teeth, implants can improve your quality of life and give you confidence when eating or smiling. They are easy to maintain by brushing and flossing, just like your natural teeth.
