Titanium Dental Implants and Their Advantages

titanium dental implants and their advantagesMost dental implants are made of titanium. Titanium is a non-allergenic metal that is also biocompatible, which means the immune system does not see it as a foreign invader and will not attack it. Titanium has been used for years not only in implants but also in other medical devices, including heart valves, artificial hips, and bone screws.

The advantages of using titanium in dental implants are extensive and include:

• The ability to ossify
Titanium integrates with the bone tissue in a process called osseointegration, which means that it essentially becomes a part of the bone.

• Strong and light
Titanium is extremely strong but lighter than even gold alloys, making it perfect for patients who need a comfortable, secure dental restoration.

• Low thermal conductivity
This reduces the risk of pain or irritation associated with dramatic temperature changes.

The success rate of titanium dental implants is an incredibly high 95 percent. Most dental implants can remain in place for the remainder of a patient’s life. Individual or multiple implants can be used to support crowns, bridges, or dentures for a secure, lasting, aesthetic tooth restoration options.

Candidates for implants include most people who have lost one or more teeth and who have good general and dental health. The process can take a few months but results in a tooth that can last a lifetime.
