What is a dental implant?
Dental implants have changed the face of dentistry significantly over the last 25 years. A dental implant, or tooth implant, is actually a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth. This means you can replace missing teeth permanently, and no-one will ever know! Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed. They are used to secure teeth (dental crowns, bridgework or dentures) by a variety of means. Dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device.
