Are Dental Implants Safe?

Proven safe and effective at replacing missing teeth when provided by an AAID credentialed implant dentist, contemporary dental implants have been in use for more than 30 years.

Dental implants are typically made of titanium, a biocompatible material that is accepted by the body and serves as a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Your natural bone locks the implant into place by fusing, or attaching itself, to the implant. This process, known as osseointegration, gives teeth replaced using implants the stability and strength to support replacement teeth, withstand daily use, and function like regular teeth.

Dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry when performed by a trained and experienced dental implant dentist. A dental implant is the strongest device available to support replacement teeth, and it allows your replacement teeth to feel, look and work naturally. In addition, dental implants are the only restoration method that stimulates your natural bone underneath the missing tooth.

Keep in mind that while dental implants have been in use for quite a while, they are very sophisticated devices, and technology changes quickly. For your peace of mind, be sure to only use a credentialed implant dentist who have demonstrated key levels of education, experience, and skill.
