Curious about dental implants? Discover the materials used in implant construction, their benefits, and why they’re a popular choice for tooth replacement.

The Material Marvel: Titanium

When it comes to dental implants, the primary material of choice is titanium. Titanium has revolutionised the field of implant dentistry due to its exceptional properties and compatibility with the human body. Let’s explore why titanium is the go-to material for dental implants:

Biocompatibility

One of the most critical factors in selecting a material for dental implants is its biocompatibility. Titanium exhibits remarkable biocompatibility, meaning it is well-tolerated by the body without causing adverse reactions. When a titanium implant is placed in the jawbone, a process called osseointegration occurs. The bone cells fuse with the implant’s surface, creating a strong and stable foundation. This unique property of titanium ensures the long-term success of dental implants.

Strength and Durability

Titanium is renowned for its exceptional strength and durability. It is a lightweight yet robust material, capable of withstanding the forces of daily biting and chewing. This strength and durability make titanium implants a reliable solution for replacing missing teeth.

Corrosion Resistance

Another advantage of titanium is its resistance to corrosion. When exposed to bodily fluids and oral environment, titanium forms a thin oxide layer on its surface, protecting it from corrosion and degradation. This corrosion resistance ensures the longevity of dental implants, allowing them to function effectively for many years.

Osseointegration

As mentioned earlier, titanium implants facilitate osseointegration, which is the fusion of the implant with the surrounding bone. This unique property of titanium ensures that the implant becomes a part of your natural dental structure, providing stability and support to the dental restoration.

Compatibility with Prosthetic Materials

Titanium implants have excellent compatibility with various prosthetic materials used to create dental restorations. Whether it’s a crown, bridge, or denture, the restoration can be securely attached to the titanium implant, resulting in a natural-looking and functional tooth replacement.

Alternatives to Titanium Implants

While titanium implants are the most commonly used and widely accepted option, alternative materials have also been explored in the field of implant dentistry. These alternatives include:

Zirconia

Zirconia is a ceramic material that has gained popularity as an alternative to titanium implants. It offers excellent aesthetics, as it can closely resemble the natural colour and translucency of teeth. Zirconia implants are a suitable option for patients with metal allergies or those who prefer a metal-free solution. However, they are generally not as widely used as titanium implants due to concerns regarding their long-term stability and osseointegration.

Other Metal Alloys

In addition to titanium, other metal alloys have been used for dental implants, such as cobalt-chromium and stainless steel. These alloys exhibit good strength and durability, but they are less commonly used compared to titanium due to concerns over biocompatibility and long-term performance.

I recently had three teas taken out at the top and because of my cerebral palsy and diabetes. I was in a lot of pain afterwards a week later I went back to the practice because it wasn’t getting any better and the pain was getting worse. My dentist Sophie was absolutely fantastic she took really good care of me And got me out of pain in no time and she was very thorough And I couldn’t thank you enough for what she had done for me. I’ve got to go back in a week to see if everything is okay no the dentist enormous 65 years in life has ever asked me to come back before but Sophie has top rank

Fantastic dentists. The reception team are always polite and helpful. I have had a number of dentists in the 20 years I have been a customer and all have been brilliant. I am currently with Holly who is amazing and has done a wonderful job with my Invisalign and then a few cosmetic changes. She has a great assistant too, which makes a usually stressful experience into a fun one. Highly recommend.

I'm a wuss when it comes to going to the dentist, but I've just had my smile spruced up by the hygienist, Sinead (hope I've spelt that right) and Sherron (hope I've got that right too) who both put me at ease with their banter and turned me out looking 10 years younger. Thanks Derrol

This is the best dental care I’ve ever received. I’m fearful patient but.my dentist (Sophie) has always found a way to calm my anxiety and never rushed me. I asked that if it was possible for them not to tell me what they were doing if possible legally (obviously they have to tell me some things) and i know it’s silly but she didn’t make me feel silly and agreed. I have disabilities too which make laying in the chair uncomfortable but we worked out a system of me lifting my hand if I need to move while she’s working on me. My fears have always been taken into consideration and I’ve never been made to feel bad because of them (childhood trauma yay). They give me distraction techniques and said they’d stop if it got too much (so far not needed to do that). Even after telling them I’d need to be referred to hospital because of one of my conditions for extraction procedures they were great and told me that fine. I’ll never go anywhere else now. Thank you Sophie for helping get over my fears without making me feel like a baby
