A Dental Implant can come in several forms, but the most used dental implant takes the form of an artificial titanium tooth root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Replacement teeth are anchored to dental implants in the form of a crown, bridges, partial dentures, removable or non-removable dentures. Dental implants are much stronger and longer lasting than natural teeth, because they’re not susceptible to decay or disease. Many consider dental implants better than natural teeth, and they are considered to be one of the best replacement tooth options available.
Dental implants are made from bio-compatible titanium, which means that your body will accept the implant as a natural part of your anatomy. The body will not reject the implant. Your bone tissue will grow around the surface of the dental implant, creating a solid foundation for your tooth replacements. The dental implant is placed under the gum, so you will not be able to see it.
Dental implants, as we know them today, have been available since 1975. The surgery is highly predictable and considered superior to traditional dental bridge placement. With a 97% success rate, dental implants have helped millions of people have the natural-looking, fully functional smiles they deserve.
