Dental Implants are artificial replacement tooth root that is fixed to the jaw bone to hold a tooth crown. It is a permanent replacement of missing teeth, which lasts for a lifetime and totally mimics natural teeth both functionally and esthetically.
Dental Implant consists of three components:
|Dental Implant||Dental Bridge|
|Lasts lifetime||May need to be redone after few years|
|Stronger than natural teeth||Not as strong as natural teeth|
|Brilliant esthetics||Good esthetics|
|No grinding of adjacent teeth||Adjacent teeth needs to be grinded|
|Strength of adjacent teeth is not compromised||Strength of adjacent teeth is compromised|
|Takes support from its own titanium root||Takes support from the adjacent teeth|
It is the best and advanced tooth replacement option. It looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth.
