Dental implants are a great option for people with missing, damaged, or loose teeth. Dental Implants can be used to replace missing teeth, dentures, or even entire rows of missing teeth.
Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements that look and feel just like your natural teeth. The replacement teeth can give you a beautiful smile and allow you to chew properly, which will improve your quality of life.

A Dental Implant is a false tooth root that is inserted into the jaw bone to support an artificial tooth. Restoration can be made for several teeth using two or more implants. The artificial titanium root is surgically implanted into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth or set of teeth.
The implanted root is covered with a false tooth (or a set of false ones) that looks natural. The titanium root serves as an anchor for the replacement tooth and provides support for many dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Different types of teeth implantation
Dental implants are widely considered to be a form of cosmetic dentistry. Some basic types of Dental Implants are:
Endosteal Dental Implant:
Also known as 'Root Form,' this cylindrical or screw-type implant is shaped to look like a root of a tooth. It is placed into the jaw to create a foundation for artificial teeth. This type of tooth implantation can only be used if there is sufficient jawbone width and depth.
Root form implants are most commonly used among all types of dental implant options. They look exactly like the original tooth.
Plate Form Implant:
These implants are used when the jawbone cannot be grafted. This type of implant is long and flat so that it fits into the jawbone. A dental surgeon places the plate in place carefully and closes the wounds with several stitches. The crown is attached to your implant once it has healed.
