Implants have now become the preferred option when replacing lost teeth. They can be used to replace the loss of a single tooth or the loss of a complete set of teeth. Implants are made from metal (Titanium) cylinders, which are placed into prepared sites in the jawbone where they become solidly integrated with the bone. These cylinders (or rods) can then be used to support crowns, bridges and dentures, eliminating the need for conventional dental plates or dentures.
