Dental Implants – What are they and who can get one?

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a post that is typically made of titanium. It replaces the tooth’s root. It is placed in the jawbone so that it can fuse with the bone, thus becoming a sturdy foundation for a tooth replacement.

Who can get a Dental Implant?
