Dental implants are like artificial roots, which have been created to replace missing or missing teeth.
Dental implants are currently made of chemically pure titanium, which has undergone a special surface treatment that guarantees bone integration.
Its main characteristic is that they are able to integrate with all the natural tissues of the mouth without causing any strange reaction in the body.
Once the surgeon places the implant in the bone, the osseointegration process begins, which usually lasts about 12 weeks. When osseointegration occurs, the implant is firmly attached to the bone and it is when it can support the loading of a prosthesis that meets all functional and aesthetic requirements similar to a natural tooth.
Another important characteristic of osseointegration is that it is truly stable over time, so we can say that dental implants are treatments that can be enjoyed for many years.
