Exploring the Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental Implants

The dental implant represents a truly revolutionary advancement in the oral health field. Comprised of a man-made root built to secure an artificial tooth replacement, dental implants really are an answer to the prayers of those who have suffered embarrassing tooth loss due to periodontal disease, mouth trauma, or illness. A dental implant dentist uses two main types of implants: the endosteal variety and the subperiosteal type:

  • Endosteal (“in the bone”) implants are more common than other options, and are comprised of blades, cylinders, or screws that are placed directly into the jawbone. Each implant has the ability to secure at least one artificial tooth, and it is possible to replace a large number of missing teeth all at once. These implants are popular alternatives for people who have previously worn bridges or conventional dentures.
  • Subperiosteal implants are set on top of the jaw rather than into it, allowing the posts to protrude through gums to grab hold of the artificial tooth. These are the best dental implants for individuals who for one reason or another cannot wear traditional dentures and who lack the bone height necessary for endosteal applications.

The best candidate for dental implants is someone who is healthy in a general sense as well as in terms of their oral health. Sufficient bone material must be present in order to provide necessary support for the dental implant itself. Healthy gum tissue that shows no sign of periodontal disease is also essential.

The procedure for dental implants is different for everyone and is the result of coordinated collaboration between patient, dentist, and periodontist, who will together determine the best dental implants for each individual. Depending on the extent of the work required, additional procedures such as ridge modification and sinus augmentation may be necessary.

After dental implants are in place, they require much the same care and maintenance as natural teeth. Brushing and flossing must continue on a normal schedule and routine dental visits are a must. In addition, specialized examinations will be scheduled periodically to ensure the integrity and longevity of the implants.
