Titanium is the most commonly used dental implant material. However, there are other types of dental implants available such as Zirconium Dental Implants which are relatively new in dentistry and does not have enough studies and long term results as much as titanium implants does.
Dental implants are used for replacing missing, loose or badly damaged teeth. They provide a great long-term solution for complete or partial edentulous jaws. Dental implants restores both functions and aesthetics as a single crown or an implant supported bridge.
We receive the enquiry of ‘remove all my teeth and replace with implants‘ quite often. However, we would like our readers/patients to understand that removing a tooth with good/healthy bone support just for aesthetic reasons or pain is a quite unnecessary and bad idea.
