A dental implant is an artificial tooth root used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures. Dental implant success is related to operator skill, quality and quantity of the bone available at the site, and the patient's oral hygiene. The general consensus of opinion is that implants carry a success rate of around 95%.
This is the most commonly used type of implant. The various types include screws, cylinders or blades surgically placed into the jawbone. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.
These are placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework's posts protruding through the gum to hold the prosthesis. These types of implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.
Implants are the most effective and safe alternative for replacing missing teeth. They are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible material that does not cause rejection and which allows an intimate union to the bone.
Dental implants are placed into the jaw in the areas where teeth have been lost, and in order to ensure that there is complete Osseointegration, there is a waiting period of between 4 and 6 months required for the implant to intimately attach to the bone. After this time, the rehabilitation or crown placement is performed.
If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.
If multiple teeth are missing within the same region, several missing teeth can sometimes be replaced with fewer implants because dental implants are stronger than the natural tooth roots. This solution includes having implant fixed bridges done.
In cases where all teeth need to be replaced, a full mouth treatment using dental implants is an effective option for many patients. A full mouth treatment is designed to look and function like a complete set of teeth, so you can smile, eat, talk and maintain full functionality of your teeth without worrying about appearance or that your teeth will slip or become loose.
