As of today, most dental implants are made from titanium, which is a special metal that has specific qualities that makes it valuable to the process of dental implantation.
Titanium produces a thin coating on its surface that shields it from corrosion. It is resistant to acids, salt solutions, and oxygen, among other things. Additionally, titanium is almost completely nonmagnetic and is incredibly strong for its weight.
