Dental Implants


Dental implants are a replacement for the roots of a missing tooth. Dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are visible once placed. Dental implants are used to secure crowns or dentures. Dental implants are made of titanium. Titanium is a very common material and is the most widely used metal in both dental and other bone implants, such as orthopedic joint replacements. Dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device.

Titanium has a special ability of fusing or joining to bone, called osseointegration (“osseo” – bone; “integration” – fusion or joining with), which is the reason for the high success rate of implants. Placing dental implants helps stabilize bone, preventing further bone loss. Along with replacing lost teeth, implants help maintain the jawbone’s shape and density. This means they also support the facial skeleton and, indirectly, the soft tissue structures — gum tissues, cheeks and lips. Dental implants enable you to eat, chew, smile, talk and look completely natural.
