What is a Dental Implant?
An implant is a “root” device, usually made of titanium, used to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth to replace missing teeth.
Virtually all dental implants placed today are root-form endosseous implants, i.e., they appear similar to an actual tooth root (and thus possess a “root-form”) and are placed within the bone. The bone of the jaw accepts and osseointegrates (the fusion of the implant surface with the surrounding bone) with the titanium post.
