Dental implants are replacements for natural tooth roots; a dental implant is placed into the jawbone, later, a crown is placed over the implanted artificial root, and the dental implant will then look exactly like your natural tooth. Dental implants are frequently used as anchors for partial as well as full dental appliances and dentures. Dental implants are made of highly pure titanium, which offers the patient no allergic reaction or health hazards.
After a tooth is removed or extracted the remaining socket will heal remodeling from the inside out. The toothless space will loose height and width unless it is preserved. Socket preservation can be performed at the time of extraction thus helping to keep the space more ideal for a future dental implant. Socket preservation is done by adding an allograft material to the healing socket acting like a matrix for new bone to form.
