Dental implant treatment is the best alternative to dental bridge procedure. A dental bridge is a process where a false tooth called pontic sits on your gum in the place of the missing tooth.

 

This treatment can work for many people. But it needs replacement after every 5 to 15 years. Because they do not fit appropriately for everyone, though the duration between two replacement sessions depends upon proper care yet it is not for the long term.

 

A dental implant provides a long-term solution. The implant is placed in your jawbone and offers a solution to the lack of tooth root in your mouth. It is a process that provides reliable support to your teeth from your bone.

 

 

What is a dental implant?

The dental implant is an ideal choice for your oral wellbeing. It helps to restore the natural appearance of your mouth. It requires one to two medical procedures, where the doctor will place an implant carefully into your jaw bone or gum. The newly planted post with artificial root properly holds the tooth. It does not trouble the teeth adjacent to the implant and has excellent stability.

 

Dental implants are made with titanium usually. Your body does not identify these implants as foreign objects.

 

Dental implant has a very high success rate. It is a safer and standard option in contrast to false teeth and other dentures. It gives a permanent solution to the missing teeth problem.

 

What are the types of dental implants?

Two types of dental implants are available in the medical field-

 

1. Endosteal implant

endosteal implant

Endosteal dental implants are the most common type of implants. Our doctor cuts your gum and places the implant into your jaw bone. It is also known as root-form implants. The implants typically look like small screws, cylinders, or plates. It requires another session of surgery to connect a post with the original implant once the surrounding gums heal. At last, a prosthetic tooth is attached to the post.

 

2. Subperiosteal implant

Subperiosteal implant

This type of implant is placed under the gum but above the jawbone. Our doctor suggests this method to the patients who do not have healthy jawbone or do not want to have bone surgery. 

 

Here our doctor uses a metal frame that can fit on your jawbone just below the gum. Slowly this frame gets fixed with the jawbone. An artificial tooth is attached to the post as the gum heals.
