Implant dentistry is a procedure in which the roots of the tooth are replaced with metal screwlike posts, and missing or damaged teeth are replaced with artificial teeth that function and look similar to the real ones. The main benefit of the implants is that they provide support for the new teeth during bone healing because it requires time for the bone to heal tightly around the implant. They are surgically placed in the jawbone so that they can serve as the roots of the missing teeth. Titanium is present in the implants that fuses with the jawbone and doesn’t let the implant slip. This book is a compilation of chapters that discuss the most vital concepts and emerging trends in the field of implant dentistry. It presents this complex subject in the most comprehensible and easy to understand language. This book attempts to assist those with a goal of delving into this field.
