Implants are one way of replacing missing teeth.  Unlike other forms of replacement teeth,dental implants are small metal or ceramic devices not unlike a screw fitting which are inserted into the jaw during surgery. teeth in the form of a crown, bridge or denture are then attached to the implant.

Some people have real difficulties with removable dentures.  Implants can overcome these difficulties in particular for eating and speaking properly and they may improve appearance.   

Dental implants offer a permanent solution for your missing teeth, A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root and commonly it is a screw or cylinder shaped,  Each implant is placed into a socket carefully drilled at a precise location of the intended tooth. often the implant can be placed at the same time as removal of the tooth.  A implant is usually screwed or tapped into place, the main aim during installation is to achieve immediate close contact with the surrounding bone. this creates an intial stability which over a period of time is steadily enhanced by further growth of bone. in order to support replacement teeth, dental implants normally have some form of internal screw thread that allows a variety of components to be fitted, providing a foudation for a long term crown
