The benefits of dental implants
Dental Implant can help restore your confidence. They feel, appear and function like natural teeth. Healthy adjacent teeth do not need to be altered in any way to support dental implants, unlike what is needed to support a conventional crown and bridge. The placement of a dental implant replicates a natural tooth root, encouraging bone and tissue growth, and helping to create natural looking teeth. Dental implants help anchor dentures to the jaw, helping dentures sit securely and firmly like natural teeth do.
When can dental implants be used?
Replacing a single tooth
A singular tooth is easily replaced by inserting a dental implant into the bone where the tooth is missing.
Replacing multiple teeth
Multiple teeth can be replaced by inserting dental implants into the areas missing teeth, or alternatively, by creating an implant supported bridge, which requires fewer implants, A crown restoration is created onto the implants. Implants can also be used to create a fixed full-arch restoration as an alternative to removable dentures.(photograph 2)
Securing a removable denture
Dental implants can significantly increase the functionality of dentures, creating stability, reducing soreness and restoring natural chewing function. Implants are placed into the upper and lower jaw bones and are used to anchor the denture into place. The denture is modified to accommodate a locking component, which clicks securely in place with the implant.photograph 5 and 3

Are they more expensive than other treatments?
Not necessarily. While a dental implant would not be considered an inexpensive alternative, because adjacent teeth do not need to be incorporated into the restoration, as with a bridge, the implant may be a very realistic option for many patients.If you have a missing tooth, an implant is a way to replace that tooth. To receive an implant, you have a metal post surgically placed in your jaw, and then a false tooth is made to fit over the post. The end result is the closest thing that man can do to mimic a tooth and its natural root.
When a tooth is near the front of the mouth, there are cosmetic issues that need to be addressed; Getting the end result to look like a real tooth is a monumental challenge. The teeth next to the implant tooth will have complex color gradients that need to be matched in the false tooth. The special attention to the placement of the implant post so that the false tooth has the correct inclination in your mouth. The other typical way to replace your missing tooth is with a bridge. A bridge suspends the missing tooth between the teeth on either side. Or, the tooth or teeth may be replaced with a removable appliance. The main advantage of an implant is that nothing has to be done to the teeth on either side. If they are healthy, they can be left untreated, whereas the placement of a bridge may require those teeth to have crowns placed on them.
