What are Dental Implants?
The goal of modern dentistry is to restore the patient to normal contour, function, comfort, esthetics, speech and health. One of the means to achieve this goal is dental implant. As result of continued research, diagnostic tools, treatment planning, implant designs, advanced materials, and improved techniques predictable success is now a reality for the rehabilitation of many challenging clinical situations.
Dental implants are like a small post that anchors to the jaw by permanent integration to your bone. After complete healing a dental crown (cap) or bridge or denture will be designed and crafted to your functional and esthetic needs and it will be connected to your dental implant by a connector known as abutment.
