Implant dentistry is a relative newcomer to the world of dentistry. It has a high success rate, looks natural, fuses with the patient’s jawbone, and leads to improved oral health. One of the reasons why dental implants are so powerful is because they are made with titanium. Titanium is a metal with the amazing ability to osseo-integrate with the jawbone. Since they were first introduced in the 1970’s, dental implants have gone through a series of improvements. Currently, scores of dental implant options are available and countless amounts of people around the world have improved their life thanks to them. Understanding What Dental Implants Are To understand the dental implant options available, it is first essential to understand how a dental implant works. If you envision a real tooth, you’ll realize that it has two primary components. There is the crown, or the part that is visible, and then there is the root that is under the gums. With a dental implant, the root of the tooth is substituted for a titanium screw, and the crown, or the part of the tooth you see, is a synthetic tooth.
