Dental Implants

A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone below the gum line, which can hold replacement teeth or a bridge securely in place. Unlike dentures, dental implants don’t move around, and they are also beneficial for general oral health because they don’t need to be anchored to other teeth like bridges. Dental implants can boost self-esteem and make it easier to eat and speak, but they require good oral hygiene habits such as daily flossing and brushing. A bone graft or sinus lift may be necessary if the patient’s bone is too thin or soft to support the implant. There are two types of dental implants: endosteal and subperiosteal. Endosteal implants are the most common and are placed directly into the jawbone, while subperiosteal implants consist of a metal frame fitted onto the jawbone just under the gum tissue. Posts are attached to the frame, and artificial teeth are then mounted onto the posts. Dental implants are usually more expensive than other tooth replacement methods, but they are a good option for those who are missing a tooth and want a more permanent solution.
