Crafting dental implants requires a long and involved process. Dental implants are made from titanium rods that go through several different steps to eventually become the neatly-formed screws that are safe to be implanted into a patient’s mouth.
Watch the below video for an interesting and informative look at how dental implants are made. The beginning of an implant’s life starts with a long titanium rod. This rod can produce up to 200 implants. The rod goes through various grinding and shaping machines, washings, and eventually makes its way to the dentist’s office. Here, the implant will be drilled into a patient’s jaw where it will eventually fuse with the jawbone. Once the gum tissue and jaw have healed, the patient will receive a crown, dentures, or other dental restoration that snaps onto the implant.
