A dental implant is an excellent treatment option for replacing missing teeth. A root form implant is the most common kind of dental implant. It is a small, titanium post that replaces the roots of a missing tooth. This post is inserted into your jawbone, and then a custom-fitted artificial tooth, called a restoration, is secured on top of it.
Benefits of Dental Implants
An implant has several benefits, including:
- Replicating natural teeth, which stimulates the jawbone when you chew. This preserves the jawbone and keeps it healthy.
- Being strong and comfortable
- Being secure
- Having the looks and feeling of natural teeth
- Being long-lasting
How is an Implant Used?
Dental implants are used in a variety of other dental procedures. Implants often play a critical role in providing the needed support and foundation for other dental procedures to be fully effective. Some of these other uses include:
- Single crowns
- Multi-unit bridges
- Full arch dentures
