Silver Dental Implants
Farmington Hills, MI
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a permanent way to replace teeth that are missing or have had to be taken out. They are a good alternative to wearing a denture, as they can’t be removed from the mouth, so they appear just like your other, natural teeth. An implant can replace just one tooth, or several teeth together.

What are implants made of?
Implants have three parts. The ‘post’ is made of titanium or titanium alloy and is inserted into the jaw bone or facial bone so that it is very stable and won’t move. The ‘abutment’ is a type of cushion, fixed to the post, on which the crown rests. The crown is the section that looks just like a tooth – these are usually ceramic.
Silver dental implants are usually titanium, a silver-colored metal that has the special property of being able to bind itself to bone, a process known as osseointegration – the bone and the post literally grow into each other.
Are implants removable?
In many implants, the crown is fixed permanently into the abutment and so can’t be taken out like a denture. The titanium post is surgically implanted into the jaw bone or facial bone by a dental surgeon who has been specially trained to perform the procedure. However, some implants have a removable crown.
Why have an implant?
People who have had to have teeth previously removed, or who have lost teeth through injury, often have implants to replace their teeth as a medical necessity.
However, implants are also a great way to improve your smile. Not everyone is blessed with perfect teeth and if you have uneven or missing teeth, having an implant can give you a perfect smile.
At Scott J Owens DDS Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, the staff specializes in creating, constructing and applying artificial teeth. Patients are referred for the actual implantation procedure to the best periodontists or surgeons in the area.
