A dental implant is made out of titanium material. The dentist secures each titanium implant into the bone. The implant can support a variety of restorations ranging from dental crowns, to multiple dental bridges. When a dental implant is secured into the bone, it bonds to the jaw and acts like the root of a natural tooth. Due to this dental procedure, a lost tooth can permanently be replaced by a dental implant.
