Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are inserted into the jawbone to replace missing natural teeth. Implants and their attached crowns mimic the look and function of real teeth. They can make an attractive alternative to dentures and bridges.
Dental implant techniques can be replaced one or several missing teeth. In some patients, an entire set of artificial teeth can be carried on dental implants.
Properly maintained implants that are anchored by sufficient bone can last for many years, although repairs maybe needed, like other dental appliances. In order to achieve a good outcome, a patient’s case may need to be managed by several practitioners. While this can affect the length of treatment and costs, it is done in the interests of the patient’s well-being and good oral health.
*Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
