All about Dental Implants Dental implants have been a revolution. Imagine how it is possible to replace a single tooth or all teeth. Dental implants serve as the artificial root by providing greater structural support and lasting longer than both dental bridges and dentures. In fact, seeking dental implant is the best option available today for replacing a missing tooth.
Ever wonder what Dental implants are? Well, dental implants are artificial titanium stubs that can be fitted inside the jaw over which an artificial tooth can be affixed. Each implant acts as a replacement for the root of the tooth which may have undergone decay.
Let us explore types of Dental Implants: • Root implant • Plate form implant • Subperiosteal implant
Root implant This type of dental implant is very effective and is closest to the size and shape of a natural tooth. Root implants come in various widths and lengths and they look like screws, thick nails or cones.
Plate form implant This dental implant is an ideal option when the jawbone is not wide enough to properly support a root implant. Unlike the root implant, this plate form is long and thin which helps anchoring into thin jawbones.
Subperiosteal implant This dental implant is carried out if the jawbone has receded to the point where it can’t supports a permanent implant. This type of implant is placed on top of the bone and embedded in the gums rather than in the jawbones.
Advantages to having dental implants include: • Feeling more secure and confident that your replacement teeth won’t move • or loosen over time • Eliminating irritated and painful gums • Looking and feeling great with an ever more natural smile • The fact that dental implants have a success rate in excess of 90%.
We have to mention that the time frame for performing a dental implant procedure depends on the reason why you need implants and the health of your jawbone. Only your dentist can tell whether you are an appropriate candidate for dental implants after careful examination.
Finally, please keep in mind that dental implant are comparatively more expensive than other dental procedures. There are no established fees; however, treatment may range anywhere from $500 to $6000 depending on the type of implant needed and other various factors such as patient condition and procedure location.
