What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots typically made of biocompatible materials such as titanium or zirconia. These implants are surgically placed into the jawbone to provide a sturdy foundation for artificial teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. One of the primary benefits of dental implants is their ability to mimic the natural tooth structure, offering stability, durability, and functionality comparable to natural teeth. They not only restore the aesthetics of a smile but also maintain jawbone density and prevent bone loss, which can occur when teeth are missing.
