  1. 1. Dental Implants: The Pleasure of a New Smile Whether you want to alter teeth absent due to an accident or disease or for simple cosmetic reasons, dental implants are best option available to provide you an improved and beautiful smile. It is one of the best option and prosthetic replacement for a missing tooth. These are basically the metal post or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath gums. Today people of all ages become self conscious about their missing teeth, dentures or bridges. The patients using dentures found some difficulty in speaking as dentures slip or click easily. However for others, the pain and irritation they feel due to dentures are constant reminders of the limitations of these dental devices. Various people are there who concerned about their appearance and feel them that their tooth loss has aged them before their time. Some face the uncertainties of speaking, laughing, eating and thus decline invitations to social events and some even can no longer enjoy their favorite foods. What are Dental Implants and how do they work? Our natural teeth consist of the root and crown. Tooth root supports the crown which is the visible section and is covered with white enamel. The part of the tooth which is effectively replaced by an implant is root. When it comes to dental implants, there are three main parts that need to be described, first the implant device itself, the overlying denture or crown and the abutment. Dental implants are mainly made up of titanium these days because of the amazing features of this metal that offers high durability, strength, is bio compatible and offers a unique property of fusing directly to bone. Might be in future, other materials like Zirconium used to make implants, but as these materials have not been perfected for general use, titanium is widely used to make this dental device. The whole procedure will take several months. The treatment will be done by your doctor or you may be referred to specialist like Prosthodontistor or Periodontist. Osseointegration is the process that works dental implants and was first discovered in the 1960s by a Swedish researcher, Per- Ingvar Branewark. The process occurs when bone cells attach themselves directly to the titanium surface and essentially locking the implants into your jawbone by controlled surgical procedures which allow them to “osseonintegrate”. These implants can then be used to support prosthetic tooth replacements of various functionality and designs, replacing anything from a single missing tooth to all teeth in the upper and lower jaw. These artificial replacement teeth are made to match the natural enamel of individual which offers them a completely natural appearance and whole new beautiful smile.
