Dental implants are materials made of titanium that are placed in the jawbone to replace the tooth lost for various reasons. With the prosthetic planning made on the implant, the natural tooth
appearance is successfully imitated. Implant surgery and prosthetic planning are often preferred by dentists and patients, as it is the treatment that best imitates tooth root and dentition compared to other treatments.
Dental implants can be applied in a wide range from single missing teeth to completely edentulous cases. Implant surgery can be offered as a better alternative to poorly fitting dentures or bridges and can be offered as an option in cases where the lack of natural tooth roots does not allow dentures or bridges to be made. How the implant surgery is performed varies depending on the type of implant and the condition of your jawbone.
Dental implants are surgically placed in your jawbone where they act as the roots of missing teeth. Because the titanium in the implants fuses with your jawbone, the implants do not slip, make noise, or cause bone damage like fixed bridges or dentures. And the materials don’t rot like your own teeth that support normal bridges.
