Implant is a method of restoring lost teeth that has been performed over the years and proven through many documents. Improvements in surgical materials and techniques have made dental implants the ultimate solution for replacing missing teeth.

What is an Implant?

Implant in modern dentistry is the process of implanting special biologically active metal posts into the jawbone to replace lost teeth. Most implant posts today are made from Titanium or Titanium alloy. This material can integrate the bone well, the implant can grow and maintain the bone integration sequentially as a support for the replacement teeth. After the Implant is placed in the missing tooth area, the bone will attach itself to the area around the Implant body to help it stick to the jawbone (bone integration). When the implant is stable in the jaw bone, the dentist will proceed to install the denture on that Implant post.
