Titanium Dental Implants
In the early 1950s, Swedish scientist Per-Ingvar Branemark observed that titanium could bond with bone. He termed this process osseointegration. Since then, systems have been developed using titanium for dental implant procedures for tooth root replacement and other medical applications.

What this means to the patient is that a missing tooth/teeth can be replaced without compromising the structure of surrounding teeth, as when placing a bridge. Where a bridge may have to be replaced 2-3 times in one's lifetime, studies show that implants can last for life, and thus saves money in the long run. For patients with ill-fitting dentures, implants can be placed to anchor the denture and ensure that it doesn't move and/or cause discomfort.
