A dental implant (also known as an endosseous implant or fixture) is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. The basis for modern dental implants is a biologic process called osseointegration, in which materials such as titanium forms an intimate bond to the bone. The implant fixture is first placed so that it is likely to osseointegrate, then a dental prosthetic is added. A variable amount of healing time is required for osseointegration before either the dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge, or denture) is attached to the implant or an abutment is placed which will hold a dental prosthetic. Dental implants have a good success rate if the above factors are taken into consideration. In a healthy patient with adequate bone height and width, implants are well accepted. Good and regular oral hygiene habits are of the utmost importance. Also, certain conditions like uncontrolled high blood pressure and diabetes is another deterring factor.
