What are dental implants?

Dental implants are placed in the jawbone in a series of minor operations to replace a missing tooth. Implants are unlike dentures, which are false teeth that you can easily remove, in that they are permanently embedded in the bone.

A dental implant is made from threaded titanium or other materials, a bit like a screw. The implant is inserted in the jaw in place of the missing tooth’s roots. Eventually, bone will grow around the implant, helping to hold it in place.

After the implant has been inserted an artificial tooth or crown is then attached to it to fill the gap left by the missing tooth. The crown is tailor made to match the other teeth in size, shape and colour.
