Teeth can be lost due to decay, gum disease; trauma or sometimes the teeth are congenitally missing. Few years ago the only options that would have existed would have been a denture or a bridge. Implants are Metal posts that are surgically inserted into the jaw. The length and width of the circular root varies depending on the thickness of bone. Implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple teeth with a bridge or act as posts to stabilize or retain the denture.
Implants have become a very predictable procedure in Modern Dental Practice and are a part of daily procedures.
