Dental implants (also called endosseous implants) are a component of a technique that replaces the tooth’s root with metal, screw-like posts and install a replica tooth that looks like the original tooth. An implant is a metal post that secures the base of the missing tooth.
Dental implants are made of titanium metal that wires the jawbone and acts as the foundation of the teeth. Implants are used to replace the tooth’s root and look like a screw. The screw is placed in the jawbone, and then a custom crown (or tooth replica) has a connector on it, called abutment. This abutment then fits into the screw that is within the jawbone to secure the custom crown. Dental implants are changing the way of life for individuals who struggle with their missing smile.
