Prosthetics with implants is the installation of an artificial orthopedic structure that replaces one or more teeth. Such a prosthesis very realistically imitates real teeth and is almost invisible to others. The main difference from other methods is the support of the structure on artificial titanium roots implanted in the jaw bone tissue. They are called implants (in some sources you can also find the form “tooth implant”).

Dental implants are made of titanium (a strong, lightweight metal) and other materials. Millions of implants are placed by dentists every year in the United States, which makes them a very common and popular option for replacing teeth.
