The dental industry continues to grow and new techniques and devices are developed and implemented all the time. Dental implants are one such technology that is being used to assist people who will have bridge work done or who will need to have dental veneers attached to look like normal teeth. Implants are used predominately for attaching devices that are needed to either fix teeth or to attach either single veneers or dentures.
The dental implants used today tend to be made of titanium, which makes them extremely durable and light weight. Titanium is a metal that is very biologically friendly, which means that it does not produce any allergic reactions in people and is used in many medical implants. The titanium dental implants are inserted into the bone and time is given to allow the bone to grow around the implant, which will actually begin adhering itself to the titanium implant creating a strong bond.
