These are man-made titanium posts implanted into the bone to substitute the missing, natural teeth. This is an alternative to bridges and/or dentures. The implants and crowns are attached and function just like real teeth. The crown ‘artificial tooth’ is attached to the implant by using an abutment. What’s so good about implants? • They help withstand greater bite pressures • Bone loss in the jaw is prevented • They help prevent hollowed or collapsed cheeks • May prevent gum decline • Do not require reshaping of healthy teeth around them • Usually dentures are less comfortable than implants. • Care for implants just like real teeth.
