Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that provide a permanent foundation for replacement teeth. They are permanent and do not require removal for cleaning. They are typically made of titanium, a strong, lightweight metal that fuses with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, but they can also be used to secure partial or complete dentures. Since they replace the tooth root, they are more permanent than dentures and provide more support and stability for replacement teeth.
A dental implant is a false tooth root that's surgically inserted into your jawbone. After it has healed, it can support a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are a popular, effective way to replace missing teeth.
Any healthy adult who is missing one or more teeth is a good candidate for dental implants. You must be willing to have minor dental surgery, have healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant and be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
