What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a stable and permanent replacement for one or more missing teeth. It starts with a dental implant post made up of a titanium screw to be surgically placed in the jawbone where the missing tooth used to be. The post acts as a root to place the fake tooth on to ensure that your dental restoration is stable and reliable.
Types of dental restoration include:
- Dental bridges
- Complete dentures
- Partial dentures
|After Placing the Dental Post|
|After the dental post is surgically placed where the new fake tooth will go, a period of healing is required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post. This can take anywhere from 3-6 months.|
Types of Dental Implants
Replacing Single or Multiple Teeth
There are different types of implants depending on whether you need to replace just a single tooth or more than one tooth. For multiple teeth, it also depends on whether or not your missing teeth were located next to each other.
- The single-tooth implant is ideal if you’re only missing one tooth or if the gaps for your missing teeth are located in different areas of your mouth.
- Multiple-tooth implants may be for you if you have two or more missing teeth in a row.
- A full-mouth dental implant may be needed if you’re missing all of your teeth.
Basic Types of Dental Implants
|Endosteal Implants||Subperiosteal Implants|
|The most common type of dental implant that’s able to support one or more replacement teeth. It’s typically in the shape of a cylinder or a screw.||A metal post designed to stick up and through your gums. Ideal for those who don’t have enough jawbone to support an endosteal implant.|
