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. The dental implant procedure is categorized as a form of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry, but also is considered a form of cosmetic dentistry.
By replacing missing tooth roots, dental implants provide strength and stability required to chew. Additionally, dental implants stimulate and maintain jaw bone, preventing bone loss and helping to maintain facial features.
Teeth are lost because of: tooth decay, root canal failure, gum disease (periodontitis), trauma to the mouth (tooth injury), excessive wear and tear o congenital defects.
