A dental implant ( or fixture) is a surgical placement of an artificial root made of titanium in to the human Jaw bone to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture and replace one or more missing teeth.

A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium, that is implanted directly into the jaw bone. It is typically an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, extraction or some other reason. The Implanted Titanium screw, then is topped with a Crown or other prosthesis, to replace a missing tooth or group of teeth to re-establish the chewing mechanism. Latest dental implants are available in a form of a conical or straight screw, and in different sizes, but usually between 5 to 15 mm in length and 3 to 5mm in width. Titanium is known to possess a very good biocompatibility, so several products containing titanium have been used in plastic surgery and dental implants.
