What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. A titanium screw, which is placed directly into your jawbone, provides an artificial replacement for the root of your missing tooth or teeth. After it’s fitted, the bone surrounding your implant will gradually fuse to it, holding the implant firmly in place. A false tooth (a crown or denture) is then fitted to the top of the implant (the abutment), giving a natural look to your smile. Dental implants can support crowns or dentures, in a similar way that roots support natural teeth.
