It integrates with the jawbone to give a strong support to the artificial bridge that it will support. A dental implant can be an alternative choice for those who are not comfortable with dentures. Reason being dentures may go loose or may be cumbersome to handle on a daily basis. Those who have good general and oral health would be an ideal candidate for a dental implant treatment. To go through this dental procedure, patients need adequate bone in the jaw to support the implant so healthy gum tissues are a pre-requisite.
