Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. An implant differs from other types of restorative dental prosthetic devices because they actually integrate with your jawbone. There are three basic components of a complete dental implant. The first component is the screw. The implant screw, which is made of a nonreactive metal like titanium, is surgically inserted into the jawbone. It replaces the root of the lost tooth and actually fuses with the jawbone over time through a process called osseointegration.

Dental implants are one of the more popular dental replacement options available from a cosmetic dentist. Implants feel similar to natural teeth when chewing due to a sturdy metal root that is implanted and fused into the jawbone. The root placement method requires strong dense jawbone for the proper healing to take place to ensure root security. If you have a weak jawbone, you might think your only option is to receive a bone graft ahead of the implant.
