When one loses a tooth, if only we could replace it with another! Wait, that is exactly what dental implants do! Dental implants are substitutes for tooth roots which act like a metal substructure on which on which fixed, replacement teeth can be placed. Dental implants are an effective permanent solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth and chronic dental problem. Compared to dentures, bridges and crowns, dental implants function, fit and feel exactly like a natural tooth.
Medical grade titanium fixtures are used which over a period of time fuses with the natural cells of the bone. This creates a strong implant to bone interface which acts basically like an anchor. There isn’t any slippage of movement, which may occur with dentures of crowns, and you can eat and smile just as freely as you did when you had your natural teeth.
The Dental Implant has 3 distinct parts:
1. The implant: the implant is essentially a screw which serve as the root for your teeth. This is the part that forms the attachment with the bone.
2. The abutment: The abutment is a permanent connector that connects the implant to the crown. This can only be removed by your doctor in case of an eventuality.
3. The crown: The crown is the prosthetic tooth which is made of zirconia or porcelain for better esthetics and durability.
Dental Implants are the preferred choice of treatment today because of their obvious advantages and good long term prognosis. They may replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or even restore the complete dentition.
