A varied and versatile restoration

The function and appearance of a natural tooth is very difficult to replicate. Traditionally fixed bridges and dentures were the only options for a patient with missing teeth. Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, dental implants are natural looking replacements that are as stable and functional as natural teeth. They can be used to hold a dental crown, bridge, or denture.

The technology that created the dental implants we know today began with a serendipitous scientific discovery in 1952. Per-Ingvar Brånemark, a Swedish research professor and orthopedic surgeon, discovered that titanium would irreversibly fuse with living bone. Brånemark continued his research, and placed his first implant into a human volunteer in 1965. Since then, the technology has continued to evolve at incredible speed.

Today, implants are available in different shapes and sizes to meet the requirements of different situations. Now, more than 520 companies manufacture implants, enabling dentists to identify the right implant for each situation.

  • Endosteal (in the bone) also called endosseous or root form implants are the most frequently used option. The various shapes include cylinders, screws, and blades. Each implant supports one or more artificial teeth.

Dental implants are one of the most configurable solutions in dentistry. It takes a blend of art, science, and expertise to choose the right implant for each situation. The doctors and their dental team at Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry are consummate professionals with the extensive skills and experience needed for successful implant placement.
