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.
After a Dental Implant is Placed
This provides the stability that you can't find with other tooth replacement options. 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.
