Osseointegrated implants — a fancy name for a replacement tooth
Don’t let the complex name fool you, the reason for dental implants is quite simple. You need to maintain the structure and function of your dentrifice. Not only that, your jawbone needs something to grown around in the absence of your missing tooth.
Normally cylindrical in shape, dental implants are commonly made from titanium, a metal known for its bio-compatibility and lightweight properties. And while implanting metal into one's jaw sounds like major surgery, dental implants are actually quite simple and can be put in place relatively painlessly.

Dental implants are commonly used today when a tooth gets decayed and cannot be salvaged. An osseointegrated implant is the technical name for a replacement tooth. The purpose of the implant is to preserve purpose and construction of the tooth that is being replaced. In addition, the jawbone has a formation to grow around. Dental implants are usually manufactured from titanium, making them nearly weightless and biocompatible. This means that they will be accepted into the body without being rejected as a foreign matter. Carrying out the procedure is fairly simple, although it sounds complicated. As a matter of fact, it is virtually painless with little discomfort.
There is a new implant technology referred to as "teeth in a day". This procedure is exactly what its name states: Implants in one day. It works by anchors holding the false teeth onto the jawbone. The percentage of success stories is immense. Implants are used to replace bridges and yield great results that endure over time.
