Implant restoration involves surgically anchoring implants into the jawbone below the gum line, then attaching an artificial tooth to those implants. After the implant has been placed, your gum and bone will continue to grow around it, ensuring that the implant stays firmly in place.
In the past, the most commonly used method by dentists to restore a patient’s dentition has been the removable denture. The downside of the removable denture is the inconvenience of daily removal and maintenance. Dental implants are securely anchored to your jaw and look and feel more like your real teeth, with the added durability of being resistant to decay.
The dental implant itself is made of Titanium, a very strong, corrosion-resistant, natural element that is perfectly biocompatible with bone. It makes an ideal root replacement (anchor) for your missing tooth.
