What Are They Made of?
The implants are constructed of titanium metal that fuses with the jawbone. This is a process known as osseointegration. There is no fast track to this. It takes a few months after an implant for this to happen. This process is, however, why the implants do not slip or cause a person to whistle when they speak. Dentures can be embarrassing and uncomfortable, and they still need to be replaced every decade or so. Implants are permanent and are just like real teeth.
This is why more people are getting implants for missing teeth. These implants offer long-term benefits and embed in the jawbone like natural teeth. They never develop cavities and they never harm the other natural teeth. They also do not cause bone loss. When cared for properly, they can last your whole life.
Of course, implant surgery is just that. It is surgery, and it should be done by a trained surgeon called an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. An OMS has the right education and training in all the aspects of the skin, bone, muscles, and nerves that are involved in the implant surgery. This ensures that you get the best results.
The process of osseointegration is what fuses the jawbone with the titanium implant. This process takes a few months. There is no way around this, but the wait is worth it, because it is what allows the osseointegration to happen so that the implants make a perfect, natural, and comfortable fit wherever they are inserted in the mouth.
