Please explain what a dental implant is? and how it’s different from other types of false teeth?
A dental implant is a small titanium fixture that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. It is surgically placed in the bone of either the upper or the lower jaw. The bone grows around it and anchors the implant, and a dental crown is placed over it, so that it becomes a complete tooth replacement. They can be used is you are missing one tooth, missing several teeth, and even if you are missing all your teeth.
