Implants are titanium screws that are placed in your jaw bone (in place of your missing tooth).
Once an Implant has been placed and has integrated successfully, a crown or bridge can be fitted to act as your normal tooth.You can also use Implants to stabalise dentures to help keep them in place.
Implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. However, they can only be placed if there is enough bone. When we lose teeth, the bone around gradually disappears. This doesn't mean you won't be able to have Implants placed, it may mean you need to have bone grafting before the placement of the Implant screw.
