Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular method for replacing missing teeth. In this procedure, titanium supports are surgically fused with your jawbone, and act as an anchor for naturally looking false teeth. Dental implants are not only used for individual tooth replacement, but can also be used when replacing multiple teeth as an alternative to dentures.
Implants are extremely natural looking
Fusion of the implants into your jaw make them very stable and comfortable compared to traditional dentures
They last a lifetime
Implants are expensive and a major financial investment
The process of getting implants can be time consuming and requires multiple visits to the dentist
There is a chance the surgery fails (roughly 5% of the time)
Types of implants Your dentist will be able to tell you which of the three types of implants is right for you:
Root form implant: This is the most common type of implant where the screw is shaped like the root of a tooth.
Plate Form Implant: A plate form implant has a flat and long shape and is better suited for a narrow jawbone.
Subperiosteal Implants: In some cases where there is not enough bone width or height for the root form or plate form implant, a subperiosteal implant may be prescribed. This type of implant is designed to sit on top of the bone, but under the gums.
Dentures and Dental Implants
With advances in dental technology, other effective uses for dental implants have also been developed. Are you considering dentures as an alternative tooth replacement? Do your older dentures cause irritation and discomfort because they shift and move?
Dental implants can secure new dentures or fix the problem of older dentures that don’t fit properly. In a process referred to as All-on-Four, dental implants are placed at certain points along your jaw, then the denture is securely attached to the implants. This stabilizes the denture.
