A dental implant is an artificial root like structure made of titanium that is placed into your jaw bone to replace a single tooth, multiple missing teeth or to retain the denture.an implant may be used to replace almost any missing tooth provided there is adequate bone at the site. If not, advanced techniques like bone grafting, sinus lift are performed to safely place an implant.
Unlike crown and bridges implants will not involve the adjacent natural tooth as abutment (support).dental implants like natural teeth also transmit chewing forces to the jaw bone which reduces jaw bone loss this is why many leading dentist now recognize dental implants as the standard of care for tooth replacement.

Blood disorders like hemophilia etc.,
People who severely grind or clench their teeth. These habits can place too much pressure on the implants and increase the risk of failure.
Young people whose jaw bones have not stopped growing.
Patient who received high dose radiation treatment of head and neck.
