Conventional Titanium Dental Implants


After the discovery of natural bone attachment to titanium Osseointegration years ago, titanium posts had developed and become one of the most popular tooth restoration procedures. This type of implants is almost always successful and long-lasting.

Made up of two pieces and titanium, they are highly resistant and strong, which contributes to the high rate of success.

The dentist places the implant. Once stable and osseointegrated into the jaw structure, an abutment is placed on top of the implant. This treatment is usually done in two visits with a period of four to six months in between.

Some patients dislike the idea of having metallic devices placed in their body and prefer a more natural alternative. Also, some patients may have an allergic reaction to implants, although it is important to mention allergic reactions are very rare.

Fellow Canadian Snowbirds, I just had a full mouth restoration completed Mar 10.

The professionalism of the dentists( Dr. Gustavo/Dr. Marta), dental assistants(Tony), cleanliness, state of the art equipment, modern environment, etc made my experience worthwhile.
