Dental implants are small titanium posts that get inserted directly into the jawbone for use as an anchor for a new artificial tooth that gets emplaced over it. These implants actually fuse with the jawbone over a period of several months, so as to provide a rock-solid foundation for any tooth which then gets installed. The implants themselves will usually last a lifetime, although the artificial tooth may eventually have to be replaced due to the normal wear and tear of biting and chewing.
They are some of the most successful procedures in all of dentistry, being completely successful in 98% of all cases. That means you can pretty much count on everything going according to plan when you embark on having a dental implant installed.
