Dental implant is a artificial titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone and beneath the gum line to replace the tooth. A dental implant is a perfect treatment for those who have missing tooth from birth,broken tooth/teeth, lost tooth, missing tooth due to injury and some other diseases. Also Implants are permanent solution to loose fitting dentures. Basically you can get a strong tooth with metal root in case of missing a natural tooth for any reason.
Types of Dental implants:
There are many types of dental implants but two basic ones are:
- Endosteal_ is placed into Jaw bone and one of the most common one in Modern Dentistry. It is like a small long cylinder or screw made up of Titanium. Other common types rarely used in dentistry these days are the blades and plates.
- Subperiosteal_ is the secondary type of implanting treatment placed on the jawbone. This treatment consists of a metal framework to hold the upper side of jawbone but under the gum tissue to place prosthetic tooth. For patients where bone is thin or weak or medical condition leading to failure of Endosteal implants. So if you are the candidate with less height/thin/soft jawbone then the subperiosteal procedure is good for you.
Candidacy for dental implants:
Perfectly healthy oral cavity and healthy Individual is best for success of Implants. Oral health is most important in dental implanting because if you have periodontal diseases you are not the perfect candidate for dental implanting as you need adequate jawbone, healthy gum tissues to support implants. Patients with uncontrolled Diabetes, smokers are poor candidates for Implant placement and future success.
