Dental implants are used to support dental restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. The implant is usually made of titanium and is inserted directly into the jaw bone.
Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures.
The bone of the jaw accepts and grows around the titanium implant. The metal of the implant is bio-compatible and does not adversely affect the surrounding natural tissues. ‘Osseointegration‘ refers to the fusion of the implant surface with the surrounding bone. Although dental implants fuse with bone they lack ligaments and nerve connections. But they do help preserve the bone of the jaw after tooth loss.
