Where the bone support is sufficient, titanium dental implants can be used to replace the lost roots of the teeth. Dental implants are anchored in bone and used to support either dentures, or crowns, or bridges. Implant placement involves minor oral surgery, under local anaesthesia, in the dental chair. Where bone support is deficient, it is sometimes possible to augment the lost bone and then place implants.
