Dental implants are rapidly becoming a routine procedure in today’s dentistry. In many clinical situations, implant is the number one choice of restoration for missing tooth. The most commonly used implants are the endosseous implants. Implants in dentistry is a very fast developing field. That is why there are many different manufacturers producing endosseous implants. The will differ in shape and form; their available sizes can slightly differ. The most accepted material for dental implants is either high grade Titanium (Commercial Pure) or Titanium alloy.

A lot of times, when patient comes as an emergency and tooth has to be extracted, we would do the emergency extraction with immediate placement of implant.
