One of the sophisticated and smart technologies in modern dentistry are dental implants. Implants are actually prosthetic teeth, permanently implanted through a screw or nail like fitting in to the jaw bone of the person in place of the real teeth. This is the strongest permanent form of arrangement for the real teeth done, so that all functionality of the real teeth can be carried on with almost same style by this implanted artificial teeth.
When there are no ways to revive the original teeth, then an implant is done there. The original teeth and the affected or healthy live tissues under it are completely removed to bare the portion of the gum. The the jaw bone is tested to see the structural strength, bone density and space. And after all these testing the implant is then nailed or screwed on to the jawbone. This is one kind of surgical procedure which involves working with the bone and muscles. It takes some time for the implanted teeth gum tissue to heal and grow over the bone and screw and then finally the teeth gets completely ready for life to take on the duty of all that the actual real teeth did.
