What are dental implants?
Dr. Justin Cress describes dental implants as restorations that are made of titanium and during oral surgery, are placed into the bone of the jaw where the missing teeth once were. These posts are then bonded with the jaw thanks to a process called osseointegration. Osseointegration is stimulated by the placement of the implant and is the growth of bone around it. Once the implant is solidified in place, the dentist can then restore it. This may be done in various ways:

- A bridge might use the dental implant as support on one or both sides of the restoration
- A full denture might be made and snapped into place with several dental implants along the arch
