A dental implant is a titanium screw replacing the tooth root. Titanium is nonallergic material which osteointegrates with bone. The loss of the natural tooth root leads to bone loss and gums. The use of dental implant prevents this process.
The placement of the implant in the bone requires dental surgery, which is performed by dentist under local anesthesia. The implant fuses with the bone painlessly, which ensures its long-term stabillity. Its apperance and functions is felt as natural by the patients.
