Dental implants are artificial parts made from a metal alloy used to replace a damaged or missing tooth. It is commonly used to help correct teeth problems and address gaps or deficiencies in the smile. A dental implant is a surgical part that interfaces directly with the bone of your jaw or skull to support a dental prosthetic, including a crown, cap, denture or bridge to serve as an artificial orthodontic anchor or bridge a gap. Dental implants Adelaide are also known as prosthetic teeth. A dental implant can be used to replace one missing or damaged tooth with another, or it can be used to repair a tooth that has been chipped off.
There are two types of dental implants available – subperiosteal and endosperm. Subperiosteal implants are placed directly into the gums and jawbone by a dentist. The implants will fuse with the bone and provide stability, although they cannot be moved or repositioned. These implants are similar to those used for dentures, but they do not fuse to the jawbone and cannot be moved.
The main purpose of dental implants is to replace a lost or cracked tooth. If a tooth has been cracked or broken because of trauma such as a car accident, it may be necessary to replace the tooth.

Using dentures for an extended period can cause the new tooth to grow at an unnatural rate. Once the new tooth grows, it may take several more months for the tooth to fuse completely with the gum tissue. Dental implants will not require any additional bonding time and, therefore, will be ready to use right away.
