What material is used for dental implants?

Through the years many materials have been used for dental implants, but currently the most widely used is titanium.

Apart from being extremely strong, light-weight, corrosion-resistant and very durable, research and experience have shown titanium to have exceptionally high biocompatibility, which is the ability to interact with the body without causing harm. Since it fixes strongly to the bone (osseointegration), these types of implants last for very long periods of time.
