A dental implant is a prosthesis that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, or facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. A dental implant is a titanium screw that's placed directly into your jawbone, replacing your missing tooth root. After it's fitted, the bone surrounding your implant will gradually fuse to it, holding the implant firmly in place. Others are made from metal, plastic, ceramic or other materials. Dental implants are medical devices surgically implanted into the jaw to restore a person's ability to chew or their appearance. We provide support for artificial teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.
