Dental implants are essentially roots of artificial teeth made of titanium, a biocompatible metal. They can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple missing teeth, or to restore a full mouth. One of the many advantages of dental implants is the possibility of replacing one or more teeth, without needing to use adjacent teeth as abutments to retain a crown or prosthesis. The result is fixed, esthetic, and functional, like natural teeth.


There is scientific evidence that suggests that periodontal disease (infection and inflammation of the gums and bone) can be a considerable risk factor for the development of cardio-vascular disease. Bacteria associated to periodontal disease can cause small blood cloths to form in the bloodstream in collaboration with fatty deposits in blood vessels, which in turn can contribute to blocking arteries.
