A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a periodontist places on jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health but have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. Dental implants are very natural in look and feel and can make you forget, you ever lost a tooth. Under proper conditions, such as placement by a periodontist and diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime. Dental implants are intimately connected with the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth..
The dental implants are of two types:
Endosteal (in the bone): 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.
Subperiosteal (on the bone): 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 have minimal bone height.
