Simply put, dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically positioned into the jawbone. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them. It is usually made of titanium.
Dental implants may be an option for people with missing teeth. Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won't slip or shift in your mouth—an especially important benefit when eating and speaking.
To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.
