What are dental implants are made of?

Dental implants are a popular choice, mainly due to their durability and comfort and the material that we use for the implant.

Modern Dental Implants 

Most modern dental implants are made of titanium because the body readily accepts it. This means that after we place your dental implant in your jaw, the bone and tissue will heal around it until it becomes firmly integrated with the jaw.

This process is known as osseointegration. It helps the dental implant form a strong foundation for your new smile. Once the implant is placed and fuses to the jaw bone, it can take a few months to fully heal. Titanium's biocompatible nature is one reason why orthopedic surgeons recognize it as the healthiest option for replacing joints. 

Dental Crowns

The titanium portion makes up the dental implant post, which will be positioned surgically into your jawbone. Once the implant has fully healed and integrated into your jaw, we will design a full aesthetic dental crown that will restore your appearance and allow you to use the tooth again.

Today, dental crowns are typically made of porcelain or composite resin material. Both materials result in a very durable crown that can withstand normal chewing on your implant!
