The main function of the teeth is chewing and cutting the food, but the teeth have a great aesthetic role that cannot be denied. They give our smile an attractive beauty. You cannot imagine the shape of the mouth without those beautiful white solid pieces….!
The human being is exposed to many diseases and factors, and when human getting older his teeth begin to be exposed to decay, or fracture, or loss completely. Dental loss is one of the most serious problems we face, where teeth loss lead to a lack of the mouth function and inability to perform its tasks of cutting food for small pieces and grinding it to be swallowed and sent easily to the esophagus then to stomach. This defect leads to countless digestive problems starting from deficiencies in the process of digestion and defecation, the occurrence of obesity, bad breath odors, stomach, intestinal and gallbladder diseases. In addition to the loss of the usual aesthetic form, which causes psychological problems, many cannot bear a smile with a lost tooth.
The dental field has become more stable and more sophisticated. Instead of using traditional methods of tooth replacement, which include Fixed prosthodontics and Removable partial dentures, which are different from one case to another, a new process called dental implants, which is the most recent alternative and the most successful method of compensating missing teeth, has emerged because it does not affect the rest of the teeth and surrounding tissues.
