Natural teeth present are used as anchors for the replacement of lost teeth. They may also be used to provide support for Removal Metal-based or Acrylic Dentures.
In some cases, where there are no natural teeth, dental implants (titanium screws) can be used as anchors in the jawbone for the replacement of lost teeth. Through this, even patients who have lost all their teeth can still avail a fixed replacement of all lost teeth, with chewing efficiency compatible to natural teeth. This benefit was impossible before the advent of dental implants.
Dental implants can also be used as anchors for advanced forms of removal metal (or) acrylic dental prosthesis, which provides increased stability, retention and support for improved chewing efficiency
