A missing tooth can be restored by an artificial tooth root called a dental implant. A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. Once embedded, the implant serves as the root (foundation support) for the placement of dentures, crowns, or bridges. In other words, the implant is an artificial root upon which the dental restoration is placed.
