Dental implants are a suitable option if you have one or more missing teeth, or if you are having trouble with your ill-fitting dentures. As a safe, permanent solution, dental implants are used to support one or more false teeth, and they are one of the most advantageous ways to replace missing teeth. The implants are made from titanium, which is a metal that the body reacts to well, and eventually, the metal will blend with the surrounding bone to act as a substitute tooth root.
When the implant is fully embedded, a crown or bridge is attached to fill any gaps. Implants can also be used to support dentures to ensure that they stay firmly in place, which also helps to improve their appearance and functionality. Furthermore, implants can be placed without affecting the teeth on either side of the gap, unlike a bridge which requires removal of some of the underlying tooth. They can also be easier to clean than other restorations.
