It’s a common misconception that the phrase ‘dental tooth implant’ is associated with a false tooth being implanted in your gums. What is actually implanted during the surgery is an artificial root to which the false tooth can be attached. Typically, these are small posts which are implanted into the bone of your jaw at one end and crowns at the other end – implant supported bridges or dentures are attached to them. They usually come in titanium and bonds firmly to the of the tooth socket.
