Titanium Implants in Nashville

The overwhelming majority of dental implants placed today are made of titanium.

Take a look at some before & after images of implant cases we have completed at Nashville Restorative Dentistry.

Some benefits of titanium dental implants include:

  • Successful Track Record – Titanium implants have been in use for many decades now and have a consistently documented success rate at or above 95%. It is considered to be a very biocompatible metal and is used in many other surgeries like joint replacements and stabilizing fractured bones.
  • Strength – Dental implants must be strong enough to function under the forces of biting and chewing.  Titanium has the required physical properties to successfully handle these forces even in thin dimensions.
  • Restorative Options – Titanium implants provide more restorative options when compared to zirconia implants.  This means in certain cases the outcome may look more natural. The ability to change the angle of the crown as it emerges from the gums as compared to the position of the implant in the bone (using a component called a custom abutment) is currently only available with titanium implants.  This is most often needed when replacing upper front teeth. The myriad of components that can be connected to titanium implants also allows for a predictable replacement of multiple teeth or all the teeth with one bridge or hybrid denture.

Patient Testimonial

Issue: Two badly infected and broken upper front teeth as well as poor alignment of his teeth overall.

Solution: Through a process involving extractions, bone grafting, and braces we were able to achieve a healthy, infection free point which allowed dental implants to be placed and utilized to replace the two missing front teeth.
