Implants are a more aesthetically pleasing and permanent solution to missing teeth. Implants are man-made teeth that are permanently implanted into the bone with a screw attached to the bone. The implant consists of a metal piece that is drilled into the bone. Once the implant is put into place, it is given time to heal. During the healing process the bone actually grows around the implant and it becomes a part of the bone. After the implant has healed, a crown can be placed over the implant to replace the missing tooth.
