What are dental implants?

dental implant

A dental implant is a surgically placed titanium screw which can hold a tooth or several teeth in place. After the surgical placement of the dental implant, the process of ossentegration occurs and the surrounding bone and implant surface fuse together. The dental implant acts as a replacement to the lost root of a tooth. This “root” can then be used to support single teeth, or joined together to support multiple teeth or stabilize dentures.
