Dental implants are a type of dental restoration used to replace missing or damaged teeth. They are artificial tooth roots made of titanium or other biocompatible materials that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. Once the implants are in place, they provide a stable and long-lasting foundation for a variety of dental restorations, including crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Dental implants provide a number of benefits, including improved appearance, speech, and chewing ability, as well as better oral health and a more natural and comfortable feel compared to other types of dental restorations. They are also a long-lasting solution, with proper care and maintenance, implants can last for many years or even a lifetime.
