Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth that is normally occupied by the root. The dental implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone, which acts as the foundation for the artificial tooth or permanent bridge.
In some cases, the implants are also attached to dentures. However, not everyone is a candidate for dental implants. For a successful implant to take hold, you must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene.
