The most common dental implants are made of titanium which is a biocompatible metal. Today most implants are made out of the Ti-6Al-4V alloy and treated either by plasma spraying or sandblasting to increase the surface area and the integration potential of the implant. We actually take it a step further and use growth factor proteins (PRGF) derived naturally from your own plasma to enhance healing. If an implant in the estheic zone (such as a front tooth ) is performed under todays standards and new technologies, none of the metal should show making it indistiguishable from a crown on a natural tooth root. Because there are so many different implant systems available to dental specialists today, it is important that the most proven and researched systems be used. We pride ourselves on the fact that we use only the most tested materials in our treatments since our intention is to provide results that could last a lifetime. Cutting corners should not be an option. Lets get it right the first time!
