Caption: Dental implant surgery. Dental surgeons inserting two titanium implants into the mouth of a 60-year-old woman who is under local anaesthetic and on a sedative. The implant is a two stage process. First the titanium pegs, seen here, are surgically drilled into the jaw bone very slowly so as not to damage the bone, giving it maximum potential for bonding with the titanium implant. Protective caps will then be screwed onto these pegs and left for at least three months in order that the bone may grow around the implant, creating a very strong support. Once bonded, very natural-looking crowns will replace the protective caps.
