Osseointegration: What separates your dental implants from other cosmetic dentistry procedures

Illustration of a dental implant with crown on a white backgroundThere is one thing that separates dental implants from all other types of cosmetic dentistry procedures: their ability to osseointegrate with the bone. This means that when a dental implant – made of titanium and resembling the shape of a tiny screw — is inserted into a jaw bone, the surrounding cells directly attach themselves to it.

This locks the dental implant into place, and just as important, makes it a strong foundation to support an array of prosthetic tooth replacements, ranging from implant-supported bridges to implant-supported dentures.

There are many factors that must be taken into consideration to determine whether you are a candidate for dental implants, such as the volume of bone in your jaw and your oral and overall health, so you’ll want to talk to the DaVinci Dentistry team by calling 817-251-9333. We are located in Southlake, TX, and provide family and cosmetic dentistry to patients throughout Grapevine, Colleyville, Keller, and Tarrant County.
