According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, dental implants are like artificial tooth roots. When they are placed in your jaw, they become a base to support artificial teeth, which are known as crowns.
Modern versions of dental implants have been used successfully for more than 30 years, and allow new teeth to function naturally.
It is important to work with a trained and experienced dental implant specialist, to ensure the best results.
