A dental implant / endosseous implant or fixture is a surgical process that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthetic device such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an odontology anchor. The basis for modern dental implants is a biological method referred to as osseointegration, in which materials like titanium form an intimate bond to bone. The implant fixture is first placed so that it's likely to osseointegrate, then a dental prosthetic is added. The time for healing is needed for osseointegration before either the dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge or denture) is attached to the implant or an abutment is placed which will hold a dental prosthetic/crown.
