Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made from titanium that are placed into the jawbone to act as an anchor for a dental prosthesis. They can be used for one or more missing teeth and can support a crown, bridge, or denture. Implants vary from other tooth replacement options because they preserve bone mass in the jaw by stimulating the bone. They are also extremely strong since the surrounding bone fuses the implant in place. Progressively, science and technology have advanced enormously to improve the results of dental implant placement. Today, the success rate for dental implants is near 98%. Having a dental implant fused to the jawbone is the closest thing to imitating a natural tooth and it remains all alone without impacting the nearby teeth and has excellent stability. For these reasons, many dentists recommend dental implants for replacing missing teeth.
