What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are used to replace a few or all missing teeth. An implant is an artificial tooth that consists of a small titanium screw that is fixed into the jaw and an artificial tooth that is fitted on top of that. In time, the implant becomes fused with the bone of the jaw termed as osseo-integration.
