Titanium dental implants are a traditional long-lasting, permanent and durable tooth replacement option for one or multiple missing teeth. A dental implant can restore form and function to your mouth and perform in the same manner as your natural teeth.
What Are Titanium Implants?
An implant is a screw, which is inserted into a hole in your jaw. It functions as a replacement root for missing teeth. An abutment is fitted on top of the implant. This is a connector that will hold the implant and your new crown together. Titanium is a metal that is strong, lightweight, non-toxic and corrosion resistant.
Titanium implants have high success rate and have been widely adopted as an effective way to replace missing teeth.
Titanium implants are considered advantageous to bridges and dentures for a number of reasons:
- They perform and look like your natural teeth
- Implants can support dentures, bridges, and crowns and provide support for single or multiple teeth
- You can eat and clean your implants in the same way as your natural teeth
- Having a titanium implant provides stimulation to your jaw, encouraging regeneration of the bone
