Dental implants are artificial or prosthetic tooth roots, which are surgically placed into the gum to provide a strong foundation to place a fixed artificial tooth.
These implant fixtures, which later fuse to the living bone cells of the jaw, are effective long-term solutions for missing tooth, compared to bridges, crowns, and dentures. Implants are comfortable and secure because they are made of Titanium.
Types of Dental Implants
1. Endosteal Implants
These dental implants are fixed directly into the jawbones, and is often used as an alternative for patients with removable dentures or bridges. It often involves surgically placing screws, blades, or cylinders into the jawbone, and then placing an artificial tooth on it afterward.
2. Subperiosteal Implants
These dental implants are fixed on the top of the jawbones, with metal frameworks protruding through the gum to hold the artificial tooth, and are often used for patients who have minimal bone height
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer patients, who are missing one or more teeth, several benefits, including:
- Implants restore your chewing power and allow you to eat without pain.
- They are very durable, and with good care can last up to 20 to 35 years.
- They feel and look natural, and blend in with the rest of your teeth to improve your appearance.
- They help improve your speech, by correcting slurring and mumbling caused by poor-fitting dentures.
- They do not come with the discomfort and inconvenience associated with removable dentures.
