Dental implants are an excellent option for the replacement of missing teeth. One of the characteristics which makes them ideal is the fact that they are made from titanium, a metal that contains properties that allow it to fuse with bone. Osseointegration, as it is called when titanium and bone fuse together, creates a secure bond between the implant and the bone that supports it. There are many benefits of titanium implants.
• Natural appearance: Smile with confidence. An implant topped off with a porcelain crown looks just like a natural tooth.
• Durable: Titanium is a very durable metal. And because the implant fuses with bone, it provides an extremely strong and secure foundation for biting and chewing. Therefore, you can feel confident eating whatever you want with a dental implant.
• Long-lasting: Titanium implants last for decades. In fact, when properly cared for, they can be expected to last a lifetime.
• Prevent bone loss: When a tooth is lost, the jawbone will begin to deteriorate in the absence of a tooth. Implants preserve the bone that normally accompanies tooth loss, and can actually facilitate bone growth.
