Implants provide a safe, predictable and aesthetic solution to tooth loss that is a viable alternative to traditional treatments. In a healthy tooth, the root ‘transmits’ chewing forces to the jaw bone. If one or more teeth are missing, these forces are no longer effective and can cause the bone to start to disintegrate.
By replacing the tooth root with a small amount of titanium or titanium screw, gradual bone deterioration can be prevented.
