What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are medical devices surgically implanted into the jaw to restore a person’s ability to chew or their appearance.
3 Types of Dental Implants
- Endosteal implants. A standard dental implant is fixed into the jaw bone, recreating a tooth root’s natural hold.
- Zygomatic implants. A dental implant uses the cheekbone rather than the upper jaw as an implant base.
- Subperiosteal implants. A dental implant suited to people whose jawbone cannot hold an endosteal implant.
All on 4 dental implants
The term All-on-4 refers to “all” teeth being supported “on four” dental implants, a surgical and technique prosthodontics procedure for total rehabilitation of the edentulous patient or for patients with badly broken down teeth, decayed teeth, or compromised teeth due to gum disease.
Dental Implant Procedure For Newbies
A dental implant is a surgical procedure in which a prosthetic tooth root, usually made of titanium, is inserted into the jawbone and allowed to heal and fuse with the bone. After healing, the artificial root is used as a base for a replacement tooth or teeth. The replacement teeth are custom–made to match the patient’s natural teeth and can be made from porcelain, metal, or ceramic. The new tooth or teeth look and function just like natural teeth.
Who Needs A Dental Implant Procedure?
Dental implants are typically used to replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth. They can also be used to support a denture or bridge. People who have lost teeth due to injury, disease, or decay may be good candidates for dental implants. Additionally, people who want to improve their smile or who have difficulty speaking or chewing may also benefit from dental implants.
Steps Involved in a Dental Implant Treatment
During the consultation, the dentist will examine the patient’s mouth to determine the best location for the implant, assess the health of the patient, and create a treatment plan.
The dentist will prepare the jawbone for the implant, which may involve drilling and placing a metal post in the jawbone.
The implant is placed in the bone, usually with a special screw.
The implant is left to heal and integrate with the jawbone, which can take several months. Learn more about Osseointegration.
Once the implant is healed, a metal abutment is placed on the implant, which serves as a connector for the artificial tooth. It is also called a dental crown.
The artificial tooth is placed on the abutment, completing the dental implant procedure.
