Dental implants are artificial teeth anchored to the jawbone with a titanium screw. They are used to replace one or more missing teeth. Some people also use implants to replace all their teeth that may have been lost due to decay or injury.
Good oral hygiene habits will help you avoid most dental problems, but you may still need to undergo oral surgery.
Dental surgery, also often referred to as oral surgery, encompasses any surgical procedure involving the teeth, gums, or jawbone. Many people have their first oral surgery when their wisdom teeth are removed. Some need additional procedures later in life.
