A surgical component which serves as an orthodontic anchor between the bone of the jaw or skull and a dental prosthesis is called a dental implant. A dental prosthesis can range from a bridge, a denture to a facial prosthesis. Osseointegration is a biological process in which a material forms a bond with the bone. This process is the foundation of modern implant dentistry. Computed tomography along with CAM/CAD simulations and surgical guidelines are used to determine the position of implants with respect to the adjacent teeth. Temporary anchorage devices are a special type of small diameter dental implants which are used to assist the movement of the tooth. Root analog ceramic implants are currently the most technologically advanced form of dental implants. They are produced using CT or DVT scans and can be placed without any surgery after tooth extraction. In this book, the various advancements in implant dentistry are glanced at and their applications as well as ramifications are looked at in detail. For all readers who are interested in this field, the case studies included herein will serve as an excellent guide to develop a comprehensive understanding.
