What are the advantages of dental implants?
Dental implant treatments have a number of advantages, especially when compared to dental bridgework. One is that it isn’t necessary to remove a good portion of the tooth’s structure when dental implants are put in place. Dental implants are typically more aesthetically appealing as well, due to the fact that the amount of gum recession and bone loss that usually occurs with traditional bridgework and dentures is greatly minimized. Also, the success rate of dental implants is high, while instances of complication remain very low. You should keep in mind, however, that you will need to maintain your dental implants just as you normally would take care of your natural teeth, and that regular dental exams are highly recommended.
What are the various types of dental implants?
There are two types of dental implants that your doctor may recommend: endosteal and subperiosteal. Endosteal, which is in the bone, requires that the implant be surgically placed into the bone by utilizing screws, and usually enhances support and provides superior stability for bridges and/or removable dentures. Superiosteal implants, which are on the bone, must be placed on the jaw and includes placing a post that protrudes through the gum, so that the implant can be kept firmly in place. Usually superiosteal implants are only used for dental patients who have little or greatly reduced bone structure or cannot wear dentures.
