A dental implant is basically an artificial root made of various materials (titanium, zirconium, etc.). The implant works as a support for a prosthetic reconstruction (crown, plate, etc.) which will replace the missing tooth/teeth.
When you lose one or more teeth, a dental implant is the indicated treatment solution. The major advantage of a dental implant in comparison to other restoration solutions is that through an implant no other tooth is touched, as is the case with dental bridges.
Prices vary according to the quality of the materials used and the companies producing them.
