Is there any metal contained in dental implants?

Q. with implant is there any metal pleaes .how long do they last.,
A. Many thanks for your email, dental implants are made from titanium which is a metal. the abutments which sit on top of the implants are also generally constructed with titanium or gold and the final crown work can be a combination of a gold alloy and porcelain. Dental implants success is very good with most studies showing success rates of over 90% over 15 and 20 years. however the crown or bridge work on top of the implant may need replacing every ten years just like conventional crown and bridge work. hope this is helpful.
