The dental implant is an artificial root intended to compensate for the absence of a natural tooth. The dental implant is the equivalent of a tooth root firmly anchored in the jaw. Dental implant placement also helps muscle tone and stimulation, and improves your bone density, your oral cavity regains its normal functions.
This artificial substitute will receive the ceramic tooth or will be used with others implants for supporting a bridge bridge or a removable prosthesis.
Dental implants come closest to natural teeth, and moreover, they can not be affected by decay or nerve abscess. Once installed, the implants limit the bone melting of the jaws and, consequently, the aging of the face.
Dental implants are made of titanium, a perfectly biocompatible and solid material.
After a short healing period, the bone attaches to the implant, which is a process called osseointegration. Thus, a replacement tooth can be attached to the implant.
