Dental implants are artificial tooth roots usually prepared from titanium and / or derivatives to replace missing teeth In the mouth.
Titanium is preferred as an implant material because it does not interact with body tissues and is a material resistant to cracking. Implants can be placed in the cavities created by previously lost teeth or in the tooth socket immediately after extraction if there is no serious infection.
The main purpose of implant application is to make usable teeth on it.
Implants are placed in the jawbone with a simple procedure when the bone is sufficient and suitable for the purpose of making fixed or removable prostheses. If the amount and density of bone is not at the desired level, it may be necessary to perform bone-forming procedures before the implant application.
