What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is designed to replace the missing root and to hold the artificial tooth in place.
A dental implant is a small part made of titanium or titanium zirconium. It is placed in the jaw bone in place of a missing natural tooth root. It mimics nature: it is designed to be firmly anchored in the jaw and to hold the tooth in place. Titanium, titanium alloy or ceramics – materials which are generally well-tolerated by the human body. Also, titanium has been shown to bond well with human bone.
