What Are Implants ? A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
WHY AND WHEN ARE IMPLANTATION REQUIRED ?
A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth. You can have any number of teeth replaced with implants - from one single tooth to a complete set. Once this infection reaches the pulp it gives rise to a common 'dental pain'. At this stage the tooth can only be saved by performing a root canal treatment.
