Dental implants are placed to replace extracted teeth. This technology has been used for more than twenty five years, and new advances continue to develop. A dental implant is normally made of titanium, and is surgically placed in the jawbone much like a natural tooth root. One of the main advantages of dental implants is that it acts much like a tooth root, in that it stimulates the surrounding bone tissue, causing it to regenerate, thus arresting bone loss. When a tooth is extracted, and there is nothing in that location to stimulate the bone, the bone starts to melt away, over the years, resulting in bone loss that can compromise the roots of the adjacent teeth.
