2019 Dental implants. Types, Procedure for Getting and Risk Factors


Nothing replaces your natural teeth, but dental implants can come close. They are man-made “anchors” that look like screws and are made of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. They can be used for every form of tooth loss and can be personalized to fit whatever you need them for. The single tooth implant is placed by surgery in the upper or lower jaw, where it replaces your missing tooth’s root(s).
An implant looks and acts like a natural tooth. It fits securely even when you chew and speak. A single tooth implant does not involve treatment to your other teeth. Plus, it may also help you keep a good level of bone around your teeth.
