Dental implants are now a well-accepted way of replacing missing teeth. Your dentist places them directly into your jawbone, where they provide an artificial replacement for the root of your missing tooth or teeth. They can then support crowns or dentures, in a similar way to the way that roots support natural teeth.
Dental implants are usually made of titanium and have an internal screw called an abutment that holds a false tooth (or teeth) in place. See the illustration above. After the implant is fitted, the bone surrounding it gradually grows up and attaches to the implant, holding it firmly in place. There are many different kinds of dental implant, which vary slightly in design. Your dentist will choose one that's suitable for you.
