Dental Implants

Dental implants are medical devices surgically implanted into the jaw to restore a person`s ability to chew or their appearance. They provide support for artificial (fake) teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. 

 When a tooth is lost due to injury or disease, a person can experience complications such as rapid bone loss, defective speech, or changes to chewing patterns that result in discomfort. Replacing a lost tooth with a dental implant can significantly improve the patient's quality of life and health. 

 Dental implant systems consist of a dental implant body and dental implant abutment and may also include an abutment fixation screw. The dental implant body is surgically placed on the jawbone instead of the  root. Dental implant abutments are typically attached to the implant body by abutment mounting screws and extend through the  gums into the mouth to support the attached artificial tooth.
