Dental implants have changed the face of dentistry over the last 2 decades. Before dental implants became a viable, reliable and consistent option for tooth replacement, patients had to settle for appliances that frequently needed to be replaced as the shape of the jaw changed over time.
A dental implant is actually a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth. Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed. They are used to secure crowns, bridgework or dentures by a variety of means.
Today, dental implants have made it possible for not only denture wearers to kiss goodbye to that uncomfortable foreign object in their mouths, but is also now the method of choice when it comes to replacing any missing tooth.
