Dental implants & bridges can be confusing and foreign at first, most people wouldn't think of them as day-to-day dentistry. However, implants have quickly become the gold standard for tooth replacement due to their versatility and how predictable they are.
Dental implants are made of titanium, one of the most bio-compatible materials on the market, which means even if you have a metal allergy you are still likely to be an excellent candidate for implants. The implant is designed to function as the root of a tooth, meaning it is placed entirely in the jaw bone, just as your tooth’s natural root is. The top portion of the implant can be a single tooth, a part of a bridge helping to replace multiple teeth, or a component designed to improve a denture or a partial denture.
