Loss of a tooth can be quite disturbing in many ways. It affects the person in speech, eating, appearance, to face people, their confidence & emotionally too.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw placed in the jaw bone to replace a missing tooth. It may be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or full set of teeth in as short as 3-5 days.
A dental implant helps to restore the appearance, confidence, eating efficiency & speaking too. It also helps preserve bone in which it is placed. This procedure restores chewing efficiency which is almost equal to that of natural teeth, while bridges can restore chewing ability only up to 80% & removable dentures up to 30% as compared to natural teeth.
