Dental implants are a type of tooth replacement that looks, acts, and feels the most like a natural tooth. The secret to the success of dental implants is a small titanium post that is surgically placed in your jaw. The titanium used for implants is the same medical-grade material that has been used successfully for years as replacement joints.
Titanium is biocompatible - this means that the body accepts this man-made material, allowing the titanium post to integrate with the jawbone and tissue fully. Once healing is complete, the implant becomes part of the structure of your jaw. This provides the stability that you can't find with other tooth replacement options.
The Dental Implant Process in Allentown, PA
When the implant has fully integrated, Dr. Mojahed completes the process by creating a dental crown and attaching it to the implant. The result is a strong, durable tooth that functions and looks like a natural tooth.
