what are dental implants?
Dental implants are metal structures that are used to replace the roots of missing teeth. An implant-supported crown, bridge or denture is then placed on top of the dental implant to replace the coronal structure of missing teeth. They can be placed at the time of tooth extraction or following sufficient healing of the extraction site. Sometimes a bone graft is needed to ensure there is adequate bone volume to support the dental implant.
why are they needed?
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. They restore function, aesthetics, and prevent further complications as the result of missing teeth. Dental implants are used to replace single or multiple teeth and can support crowns, bridges or dentures.
how do I know if I am a candidate?
There are several factors that need to be considered when determining if a patient is suitable for receiving a dental implant. They include the amount of bone remaining, the position of other structures such as sinuses and nerves and the patient’s systemic and oral health condition.
