With Dental Implants replace missing teeth and prevent the deterioration of the internal structures of the mouth. They look, function and feel just like natural teeth, and offer a permanent alternative to dentures.
Titanium Dental Implants

Since then, systems have been developed using titanium for dental implant procedures for tooth root replacement and other medical applications.
