Dental Implant - What it is

dental implants conditions and treatments

​Dental implants are titanium screws that can serve as substitutes for missing tooth roots. Due to their durability and strength, they are ideal as tooth substitutes. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth, even in cases with complete tooth loss.

Dental implants are usually cylinder or screw-shaped. Each implant is carefully and precisely drilled into the location of the intended tooth and provides a firm and stable foundation for long-term support of the replacement teeth.

Titanium implants have been shown to be well-tolerated by the body and are used as supports in the fabrication of crowns, bridges or dentures to restore function and aesthetics.
