Dental implants are the most advanced way of replacing lost teeth or extracted teeth. In this procedure, titanium screws are surgically incorporated in the alveolar bone, with the extensions in the oral cavity for receiving the artificial tooth structure.
Most dental implants are secured in the jawbone, providing a chewing surface almost as secure as that of natural teeth. Implants stimulate new bone growth in your jaw(osseointegration), locking the implant in place. Implants consist of two major parts: a permanent anchor and a prosthesis(artificial tooth). The anchor is surgically placed into or on top of the jawbone and can be structured for one or more teeth, partial denture, or a complete denture.
