A Dental Implant is also known as an Endosseous Implant or Fixture.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.
A dental implant can do wonders for self-esteem, because it feels and looks like a normal tooth. Many people who were shy about smiling because of a space from a lost tooth feel more comfortable after a dental implant.
A typical conventional implant consists of a titanium screw (resembling a tooth root) with a roughened or smooth surface. The majority of dental implants are made of commercially pure titanium, which is available in four grades depending upon the amount of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and iron contained.
Why Dental Implant?
As our lifespan increases, the need for some type of permanent Teeth replacement system becomes very important to our overall health.
So, Implants can provide people with Teeth Replacements that are functional and aesthetic.
The demand was always there, we just needed the tools to fulfill that demand. Also the teeth replacement last lifetime!
Success or failure of implants depends on the health of the person receiving the treatment, drugs which affect the chances of osseointegration, and the health of the tissues in the mouth.
For the implant to be a success, good oral health habits are required . Teeth must be flossed and brushed and regular dental visits should be done. One should not chew on hard items such as ice and hard candy because they can break the crown and your natural teeth. Also if you smoke, quit smoking because it can weaken the bone structure and can contribute to implant failure.
