While various materials have been explored for dental implants, titanium has emerged as the go-to choice for this innovative tooth replacement procedure.

Why titanium is being used for dental implants?Why Titanium is Used?

It is used for dental implants for several important reasons:

The Need for Biocompatibility

One of the primary reasons titanium is favoured in dental implantology is its outstanding biocompatibility. Biocompatibility refers to the ability of a material to coexist harmoniously with the human body without causing adverse reactions. Titanium exhibits exceptional biocompatibility, ensuring that it integrates seamlessly with the surrounding bone and oral tissues.

Osseointegration

Osseointegration is the process by which the dental implant fuses with the jawbone. Titanium’s unique property allows it to form a strong bond with the bone, promoting stability and longevity. This ensures that the implant can withstand the forces of chewing and biting, making it a reliable choice for tooth replacement.

Corrosion Resistance

Another significant advantage of titanium is its resistance to corrosion. In the moist and acidic environment of the mouth, some materials may deteriorate over time. However, titanium remains highly corrosion-resistant, ensuring the implant’s integrity and durability for years to come.

Lightweight and Strong

Titanium is renowned for its impressive strength-to-weight ratio. It is incredibly lightweight while maintaining exceptional strength. This is crucial for dental implants, as they must endure the pressures of everyday oral functions without adding unnecessary bulk or weight.

Allergy-Friendly

Some individuals may have concerns about allergic reactions to dental materials. Titanium is well-tolerated by the human body, making it an excellent choice for those with sensitivities or allergies.

Longevity and Low Maintenance

Once a titanium dental implant is successfully integrated, it can last a lifetime with proper care. Unlike other materials, titanium implants do not require special maintenance or frequent replacements, providing a cost-effective solution in the long run.

Alternative to Titanium for Dental implants

While titanium is the most commonly used material for dental implants, there are alternatives, such as zirconia. Your dentist will recommend the best option based on your specific needs.

Is Titanium Safe for Individuals with Metal Allergies?

Yes, titanium is generally considered safe for individuals with metal allergies, as it is biocompatible and rarely causes allergic reactions.

How Long Does the Osseointegration Process Take with Titanium Implants?

The osseointegration process with titanium implants typically takes a few months, during which the implant fuses with the jawbone.

I can’t praise the Brentwood Tooth Doctor enough. Having had previously bad experiences at dentists and not having been to a dentist for longer than I care to remember I went with trepidation. But I found everyone to be very pleasant and professional from the receptionist, the nurse and Anthony the dentist. Anthony was friendly, calming and never judgmental. My nervousness of getting treatment washed away. I can’t thank the team enough.

Jade is lovely and patient. I’m nervous of the dentist, she talked me through everything involved in my tooth extraction. She was as gentle as she could be, I have the confidence to go back now for a check up to see what else needs doing.

This is by far the best dentist I ever been. The receptionist Nanayaa was super simpatic and was calming me down before the consultation. I had a initial consultation with Dr. Anthony who was very helpful and understanding considering that I am a very anxious patient. He was gentle, kind and really solved my problem. After that I needed to do a filling with Dr.Jade as the days that Dr. Anthony works I wasn't around. She was so clever as she really understand my situation and helped me out to make the best decision in my case. Her assistant (also called Jade) was very kind on holding my hand while she applied the anaesthetic and the filling was great and I couldn't be more happier. TOTALLY RECOMEND.

Anthony is probably the best Dentist I have ever seen. I've always had a terrible fear of Dentists, but after meeting Anthony I felt relaxed, I felt that I could trust him too, which is so important to me. I would recommend him to anybody, he's a lovely young, and knows his stuff.

Amazing service! I left my local dentist of 8 years due to bad service and I am so happy my family is under the care of Jayde. Professional, personal and knowledgeable. She educates you on your teeth - something I have never had. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quality dentist who does not see you as just a number.

What a fantastic dentists!After trying most of the local dentists in the Brentwood area and most having a long waiting list I was presently surprised at how fast and simple the booking process was.The dental treatment was for my father who suffers from poor mental health and hadn't been to the dentist for over 20 years so this was extremely daunting for him.From the first call to our last treatment, the team were Fantastic. They went above and beyond to make my father feel at ease throughout the process and have such a high level for patients care and wellbeing.The work carried out was A1 and my father was extremely happy with his dental work and would highly recommend!!From Derek and Feeddie THANK YOU!ps. Sorry for the delay!
