There has been no greater revolutionary step in dentistry than the replacement of teeth through dental implants. Implants are simply artificial root-like structures, made of special bio-compatible material, that are placed into the jaw as a replacement for your missing tooth. Once a specialised, technical procedure, implants have now become a common aspect of routine dentistry.
Implants help in maintaining better Oral Health and aesthetics, in the long term. They anchor into the remaining bone in your oral cavity, thereby preventing bone loss in the same region. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighbouring teeth. Though the implant mimics a natural tooth structure, it has certain unique features which require special care in terms of oral care.
