A Dental Implant is an artificial tooth root used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury or some other reason. Implant supported tooth/teeth look and feel very natural, you may forget you ever lost a tooth. Under proper conditions, such as placement by an Implantologist and diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime. Dental implants are intimately connected with the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth.
