What are dental implants made of?

Pure titanium dental implants give the best, longest-lasting results as they fuse with your jawbone more reliably than those made from cheaper alloys. Titanium is extremely lightweight and strong, and is “biocompatible”, which means that the surrounding living bone can fuse with the implant. The artificial teeth attached to implants are usually made from hard-wearing ceramic or composite materials that can be colour-matched and shaped to look like natural teeth.
