The dental implants procedure is usually performed by a cosmetic dentist and is a method of replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are a method of implanting a tooth root within the bone of the jaw. The implant is made of titanium so they are very strong and durable. Dental implants look very real unlike dentures and bridges as they are placed directly into the root of the missing tooth. Almost all dental implants these days are called 'root-form endosseous implants' meaning that they look almost exactly like an actual tooth root. A titanium post is inserted into the jaw bone where the missing tooth was located. The titanium root actually fuses together with the bone. The major difference between dental implants and a real tooth is that they feel different when chewing because the implant does not have any periodontal ligaments.
Dental implants is used to support any of the following dental prostheses, namely crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures. Dental implants can also be used as anchorage for orthodontic tooth movement. The use of dental implants permits undirectional tooth movement without reciprocal action. Laughing, kissing, singing and eating are carefree and natural. Enjoy life despite your missing teeth and say “yes” to dental implants.
