Dental implants are a type of special device that is implanted into the jaw bone and used as a long-lasting solution to missing teeth. During this procedure, your dental implant specialist will use advanced medical techniques to essentially screw in new teeth. Because this is an advanced dental surgery, your specialist will need to conduct x-rays, complete comprehensive dental exams, and provide you with a long-term treatment plan.
Fortunately, this is an outpatient surgery that can be completed in smaller, less time-consuming segments. Your treatment plan will likely include possible tooth removal, dental implant placement, abutment placement, and artificial tooth placement. Each part of your dental implant journey will be minimally painful and require very little recovery time.
There are three types of dental implants: endosteal implants, subperiosteal implants, and zygomatic implants. The type of implant you need will be dependent on your unique situation and the complexity of your tooth and jaw structure. Your specialist will determine which dental implant is best suited for you to help achieve optimal results.
Over the past decade, dental implants have become an extremely popular choice for fixing missing teeth. This is in part because of their many amazing benefits. A few of the most notable benefits of dental implants include:
• Long-lasting results
• Prevents bone loss
• Prevents gum disease
• Keeps surrounding teeth stable
• Dental implants act as natural teeth
• Prevents signs of aging and facial sagging
• Reduces future costs down the road
• High success rates
• The increased quality of life
