Implants are used to replace missing teeth.  An implant is a metal screw that is inserted under the gum into the jaw bone.  The bone can heal to the metal surface forming a strong bond. False teeth in the form of crowns, bridge abutments or dentures can then be fixed to the implant attachment.

This can be a very useful way of replacing missing teeth without relying on adjacent teeth to provide support.
