Dental ImplantsWhat are Dental Implants?

The implants themselves are titanium screws that are surgically placed into the jawbone where the teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Abutments that protrude through the gums are then attached to the implant. These abutments provide stable anchors for artificial replacement.

Types of Dental Implants:

There are two categories of implants: endosteal, placed directly to the jawbone, and subperiosteal, placed over the jawbone below the gum service. You can use either of the two or a combination, depending on the condition of your jawbone and how many teeth need to be replaced. Both can be used in either the upper or lower jaw

Post Type (Endosteal)

Post Implants are placed into the jaw to support one tooth. The bone grows around the threads in the post, securing the tooth. Posts are especially effective for patients who have lost their front teeth in an accident. They, too, require substantial bone thickness to accept the implant.
