Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed or removable replacement teeth. They are made of titanium and are surgically placed into the jawbone. Over time, the bone bonds with the implant, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or even to support a full set of dentures.
There are several reasons why a person may need dental implants, including:
To replace one or more missing teeth - Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, providing a permanent and stable solution.
To support a dental prosthesis - Dental implants can be used to support a denture or bridge, providing a more secure and comfortable fit.
To improve oral function - Dental implants can improve a person's ability to chew and speak properly, and also help to maintain the shape of their face.
To preserve jawbone - Dental implants can help to preserve the jawbone and prevent further bone loss, which can occur when a person has missing teeth.
To improve aesthetics - Dental implants can be used to improve the appearance of a person's smile and provide a natural-looking replacement for missing teeth.
To prevent teeth shifting - Dental implants can help to prevent the shifting of the remaining natural teeth and maintain the natural bite.
It's important to note that dental implant treatment is usually a long-term commitment, and a person will need to maintain good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups to ensure the success of their dental implants.
