Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for one or more fixed or removable replacement teeth. They are an effective option for replacing missing teeth.

It involves surgically inserting a small titanium post into the jawbone to serve as a replacement tooth root. Once the implant has fused with the bone (a process called osseointegration), a custom-made replacement tooth, called a crown, is attached to the implant.

Implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth and can also be used to support a bridge or denture.

Other options for replacing missing teeth include removable dentures, bridges, and partial dentures. Each option has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the best choice for a particular individual will depend on the specific needs and circumstances of the patient.

Your specialist in dental prosthetics can determine which option is best for you based on your specific needs and circumstances.
