A dental implant is an artificial tooth “root” that is surgically anchored to the jawbone, where it should ultimately fuse to the bone and become a permanent part of your mouth. It is composed of a titanium post and bone-like ceramic materials that are compatible with your jaw. The purpose of this is for the implant to fuse with your bone in order to support a crown, bridge, or full denture. It is made to replace a missing tooth by mimicking a natural tooth..
If you are interested in getting dental implants, you should first make sure that you are an ideal candidate for the said treatment. To be eligible for an implant, you should have a good general and oral health. Also, you should have healthy gum tissues and should be free of any periodontal disease. Dental implants are surgically attached to the jawbone to support the artificial tooth so you need to have an adequate amount of bone in your jaw. However, your jawbone can also be built-up prior to the dental implant procedure if your bone height is not adequate to support an implant.
