What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants have been used for several decades. They are manufactured anchors that look like cylinders or screws. Implants are artificial replacements for natural tooth roots which are made of titanium and other materials that are well suited to the human body. They attach to the jawbone to become a stable base for replacement teeth. Implants can be used to replace single teeth or to support partial or full dentures.
