Titanium is a naturally-occurring element that has been used in medicine for decades. Lightweight, strong, and resistant to corrosion, titanium is ideal for dental implants. Board-certified periodontist, Dr. Sanda Moldovan and Prosthodontist, Dr. Maghami, restore smiles in the Beverly Hills, CA area with this time-tested technique.
Periodontics and implantology
The term “periodontics” refers to the branch of dentistry dealing with structures that surround and support teeth – including soft tissues, ligaments, and bone. Since periodontal disease is the primary cause of tooth loss in adults, periodontics and implant dentistry naturally go hand in hand.
Are titanium dental implants safe?
While bio-ceramic options are available for patients who prefer non-metal dental implants, titanium remains the go-to material. It has been used for dental implants, with a high success rate, for more than 30 years. The body readily accepts titanium. In a process called osseointegration, bone fuses with titanium, forming a sturdy foundation for a replacement tooth (crown), removable denture, or fixed bridge.
Titanium dental implants have extremely low risk of allergic reaction. Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills uses high-quality implants without nickel or other metal alloys.
Benefits of dental implants
- Most lifelike tooth replacement option available. An implant restoration looks, functions, and feels like a natural tooth.
- Easy care. Just brush and floss normally, and maintain regular dental checkups.
- Long-lasting. With good oral hygiene, an implant can last a lifetime.
- Preserves bone. Because an implant resides in the jaw, rather
than on top of gums, it helps to maintain strong bone for a fuller,
more youthful facial appearance.
