An implant is an artificial root that is fused to your jawbone to act as a base for crowns, bridges, and more. Implants help stimulate jaw bone growth where it otherwise may have suffered. They are a time-tested and patient-approved appliance that can help improve your life quality by providing a secure base for missing teeth so you can do necessary things such as speaking and chewing. The reason dental implants are so popular is that they are reliable and durable. They stand the test of time because they work in coordination with the jaw bone instead of sitting on the surface.

Because implants provide a secure base by their fusing to the jawbone, they are a popular choice among denture recipients to act as a stabilizer for their appliances. For implant-supported dentures, implants are put in and then capped with crowns. We adhere the dentures to these crowns, and the implants keep the dentures firmly in place. If they are well taken care of, these implants can last a lifetime.

Restorative implants are necessary when replacing a tooth that has been lost. The implant is put in and then covered with an abutment that acts as a connector. Finally, the artificial tooth, or crown, is attached to the abutment. Replacing lost teeth goes beyond aesthetics; They are important factors in patients’ face shapes, ability to chew, speech patterns, tooth alignment, and more.
