What are Dental (teeth) implants?


If you have a healthy set of teeth and you have just lost a tooth because of a disease or an accident, you can get it back through the dental implants. Here is an overview of dental implants and the ways they can help you.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are actually a type of artificial teeth. These implants are placed by a specialist in oral transplants, inside your mouth. They are put into certain places in your jaw and act as a bridge or as replacement teeth.

What is the use of dental implants?

Dental implants can act a replacement option if you have always maintained a good oral health and have lost a tooth or a set of teeth. It could be because of a periodontal disease, a failure in surgery or even in an accident.

The teeth implants can replace a set of teeth easily and can act just like the natural teeth.

The advantages of dental implants

The dental implants are truly advantageous. They can help to save the teeth in a better way than the more traditional bridgework. This is because they do not require a support from the neighboring teeth like the bridgework.

Also the teeth implants look exactly like the natural teeth and even feel the same. Also these implants integrate into the bone structure; hence they can even help to prevent the loss of bone as well as the recession of the gums that usually accompany the dentures and the bridgework.

The dental implants make sure that nobody knows that you have a replacement tooth. Also the neighboring teeth do not have to be altered to support an implant like in the case of bridging.  This means that the original teeth are untouched, which means that your oral health will stay good for a long time.

Once you will get the implants, you can easily speak again without any discomfort. You will no longer have to deal with the displaced dentures or the messy denture adhesives. It is a lot more convenient than any other procedure.

What is needed for a dental implant?

The most essential thing for a dental implant is a good oral health. Also you require an adequate bone support in your jaw to aid in the implant. Also having some healthy gum tissues free of any periodontal disease are required for the dental implants.
