Dental implant is a modern dental care technology that is fast rising and its positive functionality has been widely felt throughout the modern world.
Some people might probably have been asking themselves questions such as
“What are dental implants?”
What are dental implants?
This is a new dental advancement that involves an implant (root) that is placed through surgical means on the jawbone of the patient.
A tooth can then be attached to the root (implant), as a way of replacing a lost tooth.
The root is often a metallic one, which firmly attaches to the bone, forming a base for the replacement tooth.
An implant (an artificial root) is surgically fitted to the jawbone. This means strong jawbone and healthy gums for the process to be successful.
Once the implant has been positioned on the jawbone, a denture or a bridge is mounted on it, giving the dental patient a feeling of having a more natural tooth rather than one which is conventional.
Once the debenture is fitted to the implant, the patient is only left with the simple work of keeping a healthy maintenance of the tooth and making visits to the dentist.
