A dental implant is a way to replace the missing tooth with something very close and similar to natural. It contains 3 parts, implant, abutment and crown; after examinations the doctor will fix the implant (the rooty part) it takes 4 to 6 month till they place the crown.
The fixture will prevent the jawbone from getting digested.
In 1952 an orthopedist surgeon called Branemark found out that bones can grow around titanium and after 13 years of tests and investigations finally the first implant was accomplished.
Actually first implants return to ancient Egypt and China, when they used bamboo or valuable metals instead of the missing teeth.
Endosteal implants: These are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone. Once the surrounding gum tissue has healed, a second surgery is needed to connect a post to the original implant. Finally, an artificial tooth (or teeth) is attached to the post-individually, or grouped on a bridge or denture.
Subperiosteal implants: These consist of a metal frame that is fitted onto the jawbone just below the gum tissue. As the gums heal, the frame becomes fixed to the jawbone. Posts, which are attached to the frame, protrude through the gums. As with endosteal implants, artificial teeth are then mounted to the posts.

How a dental implant is performed depends on the condition of your jawbone and the type of implant you choose ( Endosteal or Subperiosteal ).
You have to prepare for the surgery sharing your medical history to your doctor and have dental X-rays and 3D images taken of your mouth. If there was no problem you’re going to have models made of your jaw bone.
Most of implant surgeries are successful, however in some cases bone fails to fuse sufficiently to the metal implant. Smoking also can be a reason for an implant failure.
In this cases the doctor will remove the implant, clean the gum and you can start the process again in 3 month.
