Most Dental Implants are made from titanium. Endosseous dental implants are placed into the jawbone to provide anchorage for the replacement of missing teeth. The jawbone attaches to the dental implant, this process is called osseo-integration.
If a person looses one or more teeth, one option available for tooth replacment includes the use of dental implants. Other options include tooth supported fixed bridgework, removable partial or full dentures. Age is usually not the most important determining factor as I have placed and restored dental implants on both young people and older people.
Dental implants can be so natural looking and feeling that most people forget they ever lost a tooth. Most Dental Implants are patterned after the structure of a natural tooth root. Dental Implants provide highly stable anchorage for either removable or nonremovable teeth.
