Dental Implants

dental implant treatmentWhat is an Implant?

An implant is an artificial tooth root this is surgically inserted into the jawbone. It is used to hold a prosthetic tooth or series of teeth in place. In this way, dental implants function in a similar way to a natural tooth root.

Teeth implants may be used in cases where the patient has had an accident or medical condition which has caused them to lose one or more of their teeth. Other people choose to have implants for purely cosmetic reasons. The result is artificial teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.

Who is a candidate for a Dental Implant?

In order to be a good candidate for a dental implant, the patient should have strong, healthy gums and a jawbone that is capable of supporting the new root.

A successful implant requires healthy gums and bone.

Patients who have underlying oral health problems like gingivitis or who have experienced bone loss due to a tooth abscess may not be suitable for dental implant surgery. However, in many, cases it’s possible to carry out a bone graft to strengthen the jawbone before dental implants are inserted.
