Dental Implants

Dental implants have been in use for over 30 years. They have been proven effective and safe as teeth replacements. Most implants are usually made of a biocompatible material that provides a stable foundation for replacement teeth. The structure and design of dental implants is based on your individual jaw and teeth structure in a process known as osseo-integration. Dental implants are strong enough and work like normal teeth; they look and feel as natural teeth do too.

What Types of Implants Are Available?
Dental implants are safe and effective substitutes for natural teeth. They create a sturdy and stable base for your replacement teeth because they are designed to fuse with the jawbone, so that they can create a strong base for teeth replacements.

There are two main types of dental implants, including:

  • Endosteal implants – These dental implants are placed in the jawbone. They are the most commonly used implants and are shaped like small cylinders, screws or plates.
  •  

  • Sub-periosteal implants – They are placed beneath the gum but above the jawbone. Patients who have a shallow jawbone and do not want to go through the procedure of rebuilding their jawbones may opt for sub-periosteal implants.

Dental implants come in a wide range of sizes. It is important to consult a implant expert to help you determine the type and size of implants that are suitable for you.
 
Dental implants are safe and one of the best alternatives to natural teeth. In addition, they are strong and stable. They are suitable for individuals who have lost their natural teeth. Unlike other dental treatments, implants do not interfere with smiling, eating or speaking, and they do not cause bone deterioration.
