About Dental Implants
A dental implant is made of artificial biocompatible material that is placed in your jaw bone through a surgical procedure. The component inserted in the bone is called a fixture. After the initial healing period, an abutment that resembles the missing teeth is placed. The implant surgery can be performed in a single step surgical procedure or with two steps surgical procedure

Benefit of Dental Implants
Dental implants prevent bone loss
During development, a highly resilient condition called periodontal ligament and jawbone is responsible for anchoring your natural teeth.The roots of your teeth prevent the bone from resorbing by stimulating it.Due to the loss of stimulation, when you lose your teeth, your bone density will also decrease immediately (through your dentist).Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants help maintain bone mass and prevent bone loss since they are embedded into the bone.
Dental implants match your natural teeth
Dental implants come in many different shapes, sizes, textures, and materials.In accordance with the needs of your mouth, your dentist will design a dental implant that is customized for you.Artificial teeth are made so they closely match your natural teeth.The only people who will know you have dental implants are you and your dentist!
Dental implants restore bite force
When you have dentures placed, your dentist will usually give you a laundry list of aftercare tips, including avoiding biting down on hard foods to ensure balance and stability.This can also apply to dental implants.By using these, you can chew with more or less the same amount of force that you would use with your natural teeth.
Dental implants preserve your face structure
The teeth support the structure of your face.As your teeth fall out, your cheek muscles begin to sag and your face becomes sunken or "old-looking".As dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth, they contribute to preserving the youthful appearance of your face.
