Dental implants offer a superior and permanent alternative to removable replacement teeth like partials and dentures. Implants are also more conservative and longer-lasting than fixed bridges. Dental implants can also be used to enhance, support and stabilize other dental appliances.
A dental implant is a highly functioning system that includes a titanium artificial tooth root which has been surgically inserted in to the jaw bone which can be connected to a dental crown or a more complex dental appliance. When the procedure has been finalized, the result is a strong, durable replacement tooth with an indefinite lifespan.
