Dental implant is a "root" device, used to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. Implants are indicated whenever at least one tooth is missing. If the space(s) created by tooth (teeth) extraction is not filled, the teeth surrounding the space can drift, and the teeth in the opposing arch can further erupt into the oral cavity (overeruption). Tooth loss can lead to bone loss in the extraction site, and all these changes can alter person’s bite, and even his/her speech.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. They can be used to support crowns, bridges, or dentures. A person who has lost his/her teeth, regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help to preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
