What are dental implants made of?

Dental implants in Merrillville, IN are an excellent choice for tooth loss because they stand in for missing tooth roots as well as your lost tooth. Additionally, they are made of more than one ‘part’ or material.

For example, your new tooth root is made of durable titanium, which can integrate into your jawbone. Your replacement tooth is made of quality porcelain, shaped and colored to blend effortlessly with your biological teeth.

Dental implants can also support a fixed prosthetic like a full denture. Typically, we use four to six implants to achieve stability and durability.

A denture can be made from acrylic or other lasting materials, also shaped and colored to complement your smile and bone structure. Implant-supported prosthetics are ideal for patients with extensive tooth loss who don’t want a single implant for each missing tooth.

Discovering whether implant technology is the best option for you begins in our dental office. You’ll meet our implant dentist to discuss tooth replacement, and an exam will determine whether implants will work for you. Of course, we also encourage your questions.
