Are you looking to learn more about getting dental implants in Tempe Arizona? Dental implants are modern dentistry's best option for replacing missing teeth. Implants offer a highly successful, long-lasting, and totally natural-looking substitute tooth that actually becomes part of the jawbone and helps maintain proper oral health. The reason is that dental implants are made of titanium which has the unique ability to fuse or "osseo-integrate" with living bone. A Swedish orthopedic surgeon discovered this osteophilic property accidentally in 1952. Much research and testing of potential medical uses followed, until the first dental implants became available for clinical use in the 1970s. Many improvements have been made since. There are now more than 40 different types of dental implants, and millions of people worldwide have a better quality of life because of them.
