Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to support a restoration for a missing tooth or teeth, helping to stop or prevent jaw bone loss. It is used to hold a prosthetic tooth or series of teeth in place. In this way, implants function in a similar way to a natural tooth root.
Reasons for tooth loss:
- Tooth decay
- Root canal failure
- Gum disease
- tooth injury
- Excessive wear and tear
- Congenital defects
- Bone loss
- Shifting and drifting teeth
The implantation procedure is categorized as a form of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry, but also is considered a form of cosmetic dentistry.
By replacing missing teeth roots, dental implants provide people with the strength and stability required to eat all the types of foods, without struggling to chew. Additionally, they help to stimulate and maintain jaw bone, preventing bone loss and helping to support facial features.
