Implants

A dental implant is a procedure where a metal fixture (usually a screw) is placed into the jawbone and this implant acts as a support or anchor for a new false tooth/crown, or set of teeth. Dental implants are used to replace teeth when they are badly damaged and have no hope of survival. Over time, the implant or screw, fuses with the jaw bone and remains a strong support for the false teeth/crown.
