Dental implants can be described as today’s best alternative to natural teeth. They are effective natural looking replacements for missing teeth. They have indeed changed the lives of many people. A dental implant is a metallic object that is inserted into the jawbone to act like a natural tooth-root. It integrates with the jawbone to give a firm support to the artificial crown or bridge that it will support.

An implant may be indicated if you have missing teeth and it is not possible to give you a fixed bridge due to technical reasons like inadequate tooth support. It may also be an excellent choice for people not comfortable with dentures.
