5 Interesting Facts About Dental Implants

Aug 20, 2018

Dental Implant treatment has a rich and interesting history expanding over several centuries. Over the years, dental experts and historians have concluded many interesting facts about dental implants and their treatment. With this in mind, we have selected 5 Interesting Facts about Dental Implants.

1. They are made from the same material as NASA rockets.

Dental implants are created from titanium which is also used in creating the frames for National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) rockets. This material is perfect for this purpose due to the fact it is light but also very strong. Source: NASA

2. Dental implants can’t get cavities.

When restoring damaged or missing teeth using dental implants, a dental crown is anchored securely on the abutment connecting it with the titanium base of the dental implant. Since it is made out of porcelain fused to metal or zirconium, you can’t get cavities on implants. Nevertheless, our dental experts do recommend maintaining good oral hygiene.

3. Dental implants were first used around 600 AD.

Archaeologists have found tooth like pieces of shell that were used as dental implants dating as far back as 600 AD. These fixtures were placed into the jaws of Mayan women providing the functions of natural teeth. Source: AAID

4. They stimulate the growth of the bone and prevent its loss.

There is no other dental restoration treatment that can stimulate and preserve the jaw bone. Dental implant treatment actually helps stimulate the growth of the jaw bone and helps prevent bone loss.

5. Widely considered the best option for restoring damaged or missing teeth.

Dental implants are widely considered as the best solution for replacing damaged or missing teeth due to the fact they are more comfortable, more natural looking and more long lasting than any other type of restorative dentistry available today.
