are fixtures of titanium which are surgically screwed
into your jaw bone. The implant is an anchor for
a naturally-appearing false tooth or a set of false
teeth. The success rate of dental implants depends
on where the implants are placed and their purpose.
They can be placed almost
anywhere on both arches. Implants are great for
replacing missing teeth. It is important that you
have enough bone in the area of the missing teeth
for the implants to be attached. Implants are
not only used to replace one tooth, but
people missing most, if not all, of their teeth
benefit greatly as well. Implants are increasingly
being used to replace certain types of bridges
and removable partial dentures.
