A dental implant is a piece of synthetic tooth root that is shaped like a post and implanted surgically within the jaw bone.
The root of the dental implant is generally comprised of medical-grade titanium, which is suitable for fixing in human bone. After fixing the tooth root in the jaw bone, a custom made replacement tooth or crown is placed over it, permanently or temporarily. The permanent implanted tooth gives a more natural look and stable feel.
People lose their natural teeth for different reasons such as aging, poor dental care, disease, or an accident. These lost teeth give an unpleasant appearance to your face when you smile, eat, or talk.
