What are Dental Implants?

Dental Implant TypesA dental implant is an artificial tooth root used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth.

Virtually all dental implants placed today are root-form endosseous implants. In other words, virtually all dental implants placed in the 21st century appear similar to an actual tooth root (and thus possess a “root-form”) and are placed within the bone (end- being the Greek prefix for “in” and osseous referring to “bone”).

Dental implants are stronger and more durable than their restorative counterparts (bridges and dentures). Dental implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss. Additionally, dental implants may be used in conjunction with other restorative procedures for maximum effectiveness.
