Dental implants have been used for restoring function & esthetics of a missing tooth, all the way back since 1960s. Material wise there are 2 types of dental implants:
Osseointegration is the fusion between the jawbone and the implant interface.
Zirconium Implants are bioinert and because of being metal-free, they don’t give a metallic taste or a slight galvanic current that sometimes patients with metal implants complain about.
The procedure takes about 40 minutes to an hour.
