Also the ADA — American Dental Association states two type of implants safe for use.

How do Dental Implants Work?

Once dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone they fuse together with the bone to create a more stable support foundation for bridges and dentures. This allows a more secure fit as to not shift and slip making eating and speaking more comfort and natural feel.

In order to qualify for the dental implants there must be healthy gums and ample jaw bone to support the implants. It is also crucial to keep the implants healthy. Extensive oral hygiene and regular dental check up are critical to have long term implants.
