What are dental implants and how are they applied?

An implant is meant to serve as a replacement for a tooth that has been extracted or has otherwise fallen out. They consist of an artificial tooth attached to a metal post that is fixed to your jawbone.
The first step in the procedure is an individual consultation and evaluation with your dentist to make sure that you are a good candidate. This evaluation will include x-rays, 3D scans and an examination of the health of your remaining teeth.
Your dentist will then take your x-rays and scans to plan the location, angle and depth of the implants and create a surgical guide. This guide provides a precise direction and takes all of the guesswork out of the surgery process. Your dentist will know exactly where to drill, which takes away the chances of mistakes and speeds up the surgery time.
After the surgery, a temporary implant will be placed on the post while your jawbone and gums fully heal. This can take anywhere between three to six months. Once it has been confirmed that the implant has integrated completely into your bone, a permanent tooth will be placed onto the post.

Types of dental implants

There are two main types of dental implants. They are the Endosteal implants and the Subperiosteal implants.
The Endosteal implant is surgically connected directly into the jawbone. After the gums have fully healed, a second surgery is performed to connect a post to the original implant, which an artificial tooth can then be attached to.
A Subperiosteal implant is a metal frame with attached posts that is fitted onto the jawbone just below the gum tissue. As the gums heal, this frame becomes fixed to the jawbone. Artificial teeth can then be attached to the posts.
Talk to your dentist about each type to see which would be the best option for your needs.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Implants are more than creating a good-looking smile. With no teeth to support, the jawbone can begin to deteriorate, remaining teeth may shift and gums can become damaged. Implants will help to stop bone loss, will keep all of the teeth in place and reduce the risk of gum deterioration and damage.
