Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that support a dental restoration. They are different from a dental bridge, which relies on the adjacent teeth for support. Dental implants are standalone restorations and do not require neighboring teeth for support.
Dental implants are small posts made from titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone. After a healing period, the implants are fitted with a dental crown. If multiple teeth are missing, dental bridges or dentures can be created and anchored to the dental implants.
