Implants are one of the latest ways of replacing teeth and are commonly known as man- made teeth. The implant itself replaces the root of the tooth. Once the implant has been placed in a painless procedure it is allowed to fuse with your bone for several months.
Once your bone has been fused with the implant it is restored with a crown a bridge or used to retain a denture. The implant is easily maintained as the cleaning and flossing regime is very similar to that of natural teeth. It also has the advantages of being stable and predictable not relying on the adjacent teeth and does not involve their re-contouring.
