Dental Implant


Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with metal, screwlike posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones

A dental implant is a metal(titanium) post that replaces the missing tooth's root section. An artificial tooth (crown) is attached to an extension of the dental implant's post (abutment), giving you the appearance of a natural tooth.



Abutment

When your dentist places your dental implant, the metal component that serves as a foundation for the crown is referred to as an abutment. It only serves as a connector, with one end attached to your jawbone and the crown on the other.

Titanium (Ti)

Titanium is widely used in medical and dental implant devices, such as : artificial joints, bone fixators, spinal fixators, dental implants, and so on, due to its excellent corrosion resistance and hard-tissue compatibility (bone formation and bone bonding ability).Again, titanium is the best material for dental implants due to its biocompatibility. This means that it is accurately adapted to the human body. It can also be fused with human bones. The two-piece system enables adjustable implants to address low bone defects.
