What are Dental Implants
The concept of dental implantology is the replacement of missing teeth by placing an artificial (titanium) root in the jaw bone where the teeth had been, and securing a crown or denture using this implant as a foundation.
After an implant is placed in the jaw bone, it will integrate with the bone over several months through a process called “osseointegration”. A structure called the abutment is secured onto the implant and the dental prosthesis such as a crown is then placed over it.
After decades of research and clinical success, dental implants are becoming the number one choice for tooth replacement therapy.
