A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth (crown), bridge or even an over-denture. Dental implants are made of pure titanium, a material that is completely bio-compatible (compatible with body tissues) and actually integrates with the surrounding bone and becomes part of the body. Dental implants are an effective, safe and predictable solution to the problems resulting from missing teeth.
Apart from being able to smile, eat, and speak better; dental implants prevent the onset of poor facial profile due to the loss of bone mass in your jawbone. Dental Implants prevent bone loss by transmitting load forces during the chewing process down into the jawbone. The jawbone reacts to this loading by increasing the bone density. Dental Implants are well known in their ability to stop bone loss and restore facial skeletal structure while significantly improving digestion.
