A dental implant is a small man-made titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to bond with the bone and serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Implant supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants preserve the integrity of the facial structure and reduce the inconvenience associated with tooth loss.
A dental implant is usually 6-11 mm long and its diameter is 3-5 mm. Dental implants are a proven restorative option with a long clinical history. There are many different implant systems available and when competently used they can all deliver a highly reliable form of treatment.
