Dental Implants have changed the face of dentistry over the last 25 years. A dental implant is actually a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth. Like tooth roots, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed. They are used to secure crowns (the parts of the teeth seen in the mouth), bridgework or dentures by a variety of means. Dental implants are made or titanium, which is lightweight, strong and biocompatible. Titanium and titanium alloys are the most widely used metals in both dental and other orthopedic bone implants. Dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device.
The practice of implant dentistry is as much about art and experience as it is about science.
