Dental Implants are one of the most important advancements in dentistry; they are used for both aesthetic and functional reasons.
When your teeth are in correct alignment, they prevent each other from moving. If you are missing a tooth or teeth, this allows adjacent and opposing teeth to move and impinge into the vacant space, your teeth can become crooked and therefore hard to clean and this can lead to decay and inevitably tooth loss. Also when a tooth root is absent, your jawbone will deteriorate as it is no longer being used to secure your tooth, and this may result in changes of facial muscle structure.
Dental implants are fake tooth roots, on which crowns (artificial teeth) are placed. Dental implants are used to replace missing or damaged teeth and are fitted into the jaw bone, and because of this they look and feel very natural and comfortable.
