Dental implants have changed dentistry for the better. Much like a replacement for the root or roots of a tooth, dental implants are secured to the jawbone and are not visible once surgically placed. Crowns, the part of the teeth that are visible in your mouth, are secured during the implant procedure.
Implants are made from titanium and titanium alloys are the most commonly used items in the medical field because they’re not as likely to be rejected by the body. They’re used in other types of orthopedic joint replacements and bone implants.
