Dental Implant Procedure at Oral and Facial Surgery, Greenbelt MD
A dental implant is a "root" device, usually made of titanium, used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth to replace missing teeth. Virtually all dental implants placed today are root-form endosseous implants (they appear similar to an actual tooth root), and are placed within the bone.
Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures. They can also be used as anchorage for orthodontic tooth movement. If you are missing a tooth, ask your dentist if you might be a good candidate for a dental implant--the next best thing to the teeth nature gives you!
