At Dentists & Doctors, we offer Dental Implant services from single tooth replacement to full mouth reconstruction. You may ask, what is a Dental Implant?
Let’s begin from the start, a dental implant is actually a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth. Like tooth roots, dental implants are placed in the jawbone and are not visible.
They are used to secure crowns (the top half of the tooth seen in the mouth), bridgework or dentures by a variety of means. Dental implants are made of titanium, which is very light, strong and biocompatible, meaning it is not rejected by the body.
Titanium and titanium alloys are the most widely used metals in both dental and medical implants, such as orthopaedic joint replacements. Dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device.
