What's an Implant?

Implants to restore missing teeth
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into jaw bone to return the function and look of a natural tooth.

Good oral health can have a positive impact on your overall health, as can dental treatments, materials and procedures. Having a set of natural looking teeth can also influence your confidence and looks, since teeth are the framework for your lips and mouth. Proper chewing and digestion rely on them, as does your ability to speak clearly.

Titanium implants are the norm, but what if you are metal sensitive?
Most dental implants today are made of titanium, a metal, which has great strength and elasticity and which also grows together well with human bone. 

But what if you are sensitive, allergic or simply suspicious of having metal in your mouth? Zirconium implants may be your best alternative.
