You need to visit us to fully understand what dental implants are and how helpful they can be. There are many questions that patients have on implants, and we will help you gain knowledge on them.

What is a Dental Implant?


A dental implant is a metal device that is surgically attached to your jawbone below the gum line and onto which replacement teeth can be attached. Osseointegration is the process through which metal implants become permanently attached to your bone (the bone fuses to the metal). This procedure gives consistent assistance on which you may rely when eating and conversing.

What Are Subperiosteal Implants?


Subperiosteal implants are placed on top of the jawbone and behind the gum tissue. Over time, they form a strong bond with your jawbone, through osseointegration. There are a few reasons why your dentist may prescribe them over endosteal implants, which are more often utilized in dentistry. If the oral surgeon determines that they are the best choice for you, he or she will conduct two operations. It will be necessary to cut an opening in your gum line near the tooth loss region during the initial operation to create a mold of your jawbone. Sutures will be used to seal the incision until the second surgery, during which the implant will be inserted into the bone.

What Are Endosteal Implants?


Endosteal implants are also known as dental implants or dental screws. They are inserted into the jaw by a surgical procedure and are made of titanium. To attach to the abutment (connector to the implant) the surgeon waits for a period of up to six weeks.

Are Dentures Made into Implants?


Dentures cannot be converted into implants in any way. Implants are metal screws to aid in the anchoring and supporting of artificial teeth. Dentures that have been worn for a long period may be able to benefit from implants beneath them to help stabilize and support them. If the present dentures are otherwise in great shape, it would only be possible to replace them. You should schedule an appointment with your dentist to have your current dentures thoroughly inspected.
