Dental implants are artificial devices that are surgically installed into the bone to fuse with it permanently. Dental implants come in many types like dentures, bridges, dentures, crowns, and veneers. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth or dentures. Dental implants are also referred to as postop titanium postop bone graft or a postop titanium rod implant.
An implanted tooth is attached to the natural teeth, so the patient will not lose any of their natural teeth when they have dental implants. Most people who need dental implants do not have healthy gums or teeth to place the new dental implants in. This allows the dentist to place the dental implants in the most stable location possible, which minimizes risk of infection and helps to keep the patient comfortable during the healing process. A good quality dentist can determine whether or not a patient is a candidate for dental implants.
