A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that an Oral Implantologist like Dr. Prem Pankaj places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, failure of endodontics, an injury, or some other reason.
Dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Dental Implants Can – Replace one or more teeth without affecting adjacent teeth, support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture & provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
