Implants are a safe, well-established and popular dental treatment. There are many different implant systems available, and when competently used they can all deliver a highly reliable form of treatment.
A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root that is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails, and just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone. But don't worry, it isn't anywhere near as painful as it sounds. Your dentist will explain how to prepare for your procedure and tell you exactly what will happen.
