Dental implants provide a substitute for the root of your teeth, which is made out of titanium and is secured to your jaw bone.
A hole is drilled where it is needed and the implant is screwed or tapped into place. The implant is often placed at the same time as the original tooth is removed.
The outer surface of the implant is coated, allowing the bone tissue to grow. This helps give your tooth strength and stability and is a process known as osseointegration.
There is normally an internal screw thread or post space that allows other components to be fitted.
After three months, once the implants have been integrated into the mouth, they can provide support for crowns, bridges and dentures in the future.
