What Are Dental Implants Made Of?

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

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 and form a strong foundation for your new smile. Titanium's biocompatible nature is one of the reasons that 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'll 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 result in a very durable crown that can withstand normal chewing on your implant!

Our team of experts has worked with many patients to achieve the smile they want with dental implants. Give our office a call today for more information on getting started!
