A dental implant is a substance placed into your jaw to support a crown, to hold a replacement of tooth or bridge. It can be also referred as artificial root that is surgically inserted into the jaw bone.
Dental Implants fall under both prosthetic dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. The procedure for this artificial tooth consists of 2 stages: placement of a replacement tooth, followed by placement of a tooth replacement.
A detailed consultation and planning with your dentist are adequate before any implant procedure. People who suffer from tooth decay, gum diseases, root canal failure or tooth loss are in need of Dental Implants. If the dental condition is to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all of the teeth, the dental implant itself is the best key. The duration of the procedure is highly variable, largely because healing is often required in between steps of the procedure.
