Replacing Teeth – Implant
Dental Implant are the most modern method of replacing missing teeth. They are basically substitutes for the natural tooth roots. They are made of Titanium alloy. These artificial roots are anchored in the bone beneath the gums where they become fused into the jaw. Implants come in many different sizes and shapes and they are placed into the bone to act as support for a prosthetic crown. Once the Implants are integrated well, they give the same comfort as the strong original teeth while eating and speaking. A crown is mounted on top the implant for a long-lasting and natural looking smile.
