Benefits of Titanium Dental Implants

Biocompatible Material

The body accepts titanium very well. It is a biocompatible material, not harmful to living tissue. When a titanium piece is placed, the body doesn’t reject titanium and won’t develop an infection. The titanium is also resistant to bacteria. Titanium can exist within the body without rusting, decaying, or creating another complication.

Titanium is a metal that is often used in dentistry because of its strength and biocompatibility. A titanium screw is often used to hold a dental crown in place. Titanium is solid and will hold the crown securely in place until the crown is permanently cemented to the tooth. Titanium screws can, however, cause complications. Because the screw is so durable, it can be tough to remove. For instance, if a dental crown breaks, the titanium screw may become attached to the broken crown and cause problems. 

Titanium screws can also become damaged and break off if they are not adequately protected. The best way to protect your titanium screw is to use a temporary dental crown. A temporary dental crown protects a titanium screw by covering it. The temporary crown covers the screw head and prevents it from coming into contact with any other hard or sharp objects. This means that the titanium screw is protected from damage. If not, use a temporary dental crown; the titanium screw is unprotected and may become damaged or broken. A titanium screw is solid strong. 

If a broken dental crown is put back in place, the titanium screw is often not strong enough to hold the crown in place. The broken crown may slip out. If the titanium screw is not strong enough to control the crown in place, the broken crown must be removed and replaced.

 If your dental crown breaks, or if your dental crown needs to be removed for any reason, it is best to use a temporary dental crown to help protect your titanium screw.

Benefits of Titanium Dental Implants

  • Fuses to the jawbone: Once the titanium post or screw is placed in the jawbone, the bone fuses to the implant, creating a solid foundation for the replacement tooth.
  • Supports normal chewing and biting function. A replacement tooth supported by a titanium implant can chew and bite just like a strong, natural tooth.
  • Stimulates the jawbone. Once implanted in the jawbone, the titanium implant stimulates the bone tissue to prevent deterioration. A strong jawbone is essential to supporting the rest of the teeth and the facial structures.
  • Strong: Titanium is one of the strongest metals, yet it is also lightweight.
  • Won’t interfere with X-rays or other imaging tests: The metal is non-ferromagnetic, meaning once it is implanted in the body, it won’t interfere with X-rays or MRIs.
  • Long-lasting: A properly placed and cared-for titanium implant can last indefinitely.

The Importance of Selecting a Qualified Implant Dentist

Dental implant treatment is not without risk. The safety and success of titanium implants depend heavily on the experience and skill of the dentist placing them. An inexperienced dentist may position or install the implant incorrectly, causing complications or possibly even implant failure.
