What are Implants Made of?
Dental implants are a popular choice largely due to their durability and comfort. A high level of comfort is achieved in part by what the actual implant is made of.
Most modern dental implants are made of surgical grade titanium alloy, because not only is titanium extremely safe and easily accepted by the human body, but it also becomes firmly integrated into the bone tissue to provide a very strong foundation for your new smile. It’s for these same reasons that titanium has long been recognized as the best option in orthopedic surgery for procedures such as prosthetic joint replacement.
The titanium portion makes up the implant post, which will be surgically inserted into your jawbone. Once the implant has fully healed, the second part of your dental implant is a full crown. Crowns are typically made of porcelain or a composite material today. These materials offer a very durable crown that can withstand normal eating on your implant!
