WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?
A dental implant is designed to replace the missing root and to hold the artificial tooth in place.
DENTAL IMPLANT AS REPLACEMENT FOR NATURAL TOOTH
A dental implant mimics nature: it is designed to be firmly anchored in the jaw and to hold the tooth in place. The implant is a small part made of titanium, titanium alloy or ceramics – materials which are generally well-tolerated by the human body. Also, titanium has been shown to bond well with the human bone.
PLACING AN IMPLANT
The dental implant is surgically inserted under local anesthetic. Once healed, the artificial root acts as a base for the visible top of the tooth.
The dental implant can be used to replace an individual tooth, more than one tooth, or all teeth.
WHAT ARE IMPLANT RETAINED DENTURES?
An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants. An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. It is based on placing two implants. An alternative to this would be to place a fixed bridge on 4-6 implants that is not removable.
1. A Natural tooth with root
2. The Implant in bone
3. The abutment and crown connected to the implant.
