Dental implant is an artificial tooth root made from titanium and it is placed into the jawbone to support a replacement tooth or bridge.
It’s the ideal option to replace one or more missing teeth, due to dental decay, trauma or some other reason.
The biggest benefit of a dental implant compared to a bridge or denture is that they do not rely on neighbouring teeth or shrinking gums for support. They are permanent and stable with a long term success rate of about 98%.
Case selection, diagnostic planning and CT Scan is crucial for achieving such a high success rate.
