A dental implant is a surgical structure that replaces a missing tooth with an artificial one. With a metal-like screw device, the surgeon inserts an implant into the jawbone, and it acts as an anchor for an artificial tooth, called a crown. A device called an abutment connects the artificial tooth to the dental implant.The crown is custom-made to fit the person’s mouth and match the color of their teeth. Implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Implants have several advantages over dentures. Implants are more natural and comfortable,improve chewing function, lead to a lower risk of cavities, lead to better maintenance of bone at the site of the lost tooth, decrease sensitivity in nearby teeth, and do not need to be taken out and cleaned every night like dentures. However, dental implants are not suitable for everyone, a person’s bones must be healthy before they can undergo implant surgery. Dental implant surgery is considered to be safe when a qualified and experienced dentist performs it. It is also the only dental restoration option that maintains the health of the person’s jawbone and stimulates its growth.
