Dental Implant Surgery
A dental implant includes an artificial tooth root surgically fixed to your jawbone below the gums (which replaces the missing tooth root) and the crown mounted on top of it (which replaces the missing tooth). Unlike other missing teeth replacement options like dentures or bridges, an implant is unique as it is not placed on top of your gum but below the gum, attached to your jawbone. The implant helps in stimulating the activity that keeps the bone in your jaw strong and healthy and further prevents bone loss and weakening of the jaw bone. Dental implants are an excellent option for replacing missing teeth as they not only feel and function like natural teeth, but they require less maintenance.
There are many known advantages of dental implants, including, but are not limited to:
- Improved appearance
- Improved speech
- Improved comfort
- Easier eating
- Improved oral health
- Maintenance of bone (avoid atrophy of the jaw bone)
- Improved self-esteem
