What are Dental Implants?

According to the medical dictionary, an implant is " an inorganic material that's inserted into the body ". Many parts of the body can be successfully replaced and many of the most successful replacements are implants. For example, there are eye implants, facial implants, breast implants, heart implants and dental implants.

One of the main reasons that all these implants work is that they are inorganic and have never been a living tissue. A dental implant is a specially designed small cylinder or screw made of a biologically compatible material extensively tested over several years called titanium metal. Implants act as an anchor and can be used for replacing a single tooth, one or both ends of a bridge or a full denture.

Dental implants have more than 25 years of continues research that has resulted in excellent technology that gives me the peace of mind of providing you a success rate of over 95 percent.
