What is a Dental Implant?

Straumann Dental Implant

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that integrates with the bone to act as an artificial root. Being made of titanium, it is completely “biocompatible” – there is no rejection per se. Over a period of time, your own bone becomes attached to the surface of the implant and it becomes part of your body.

What can implants be used for?

Dental implants are used when a tooth or teeth have been lost.
