  • What is the procedure for dental implants? Are dental implants safe?

    The first step is having the dentist consult and visually examine the site in the mouth where the dental implant is being considered. Then the oral surgeon needs to consider if there are any current teeth that need to be extracted and which type of bone graft needs to be conducted. These procedures will take place first and the patient will be allowed a few months to heal to ensure an adequate and strong bone is present at the site of the implant.

    Once this is determined, the dental implant is placed into the bone and a healing cap is placed over the implant so the healing phase can begin. This is followed by regular check-ups to ensure proper healing and that there is no infection around the place of surgery.

  • What types of dental implants exist?

    Two of the most commonly used dental implants are endosteal implants and all-on-4 implants. Endosteal implants are the most common dental implant option. They are comprised of a titanium metal rod that is installed into the jawbone and a supporting post that is specifically designed to secure either a dental crown or a dental bridge.  All-on-4 implants are a revolutionary dental implant system in which an entire top or bottom denture is supported on just four implants. Each implant is strategically placed so that the replacement teeth remain steady and secure. The advantage of using four implants is that it helps promote faster patient recovery and reduces the likelihood of complications from possible implant failure.

  • What are the benefits of dental implants?

    A person suffering from tooth loss will experience many challenges. The most obvious of these challenges are difficulties when chewing and speaking clearly. When tooth loss is left untreated it can result in very serious problems like tooth shifts, jawbone deterioration, facial structure loss and bite imbalances.  These issues usually develop over time when there is no root system to maintain bone health and alignment.  Dental implants provide an artificial root system to maintain order and keep the remaining teeth in line.

    They can not only help a patient overcome short-term challenges; they can also prevent long-term problems linked to tooth loss. They are the most effective method for treating tooth loss because dental implants serve as an artificial root system for supporting a prosthetic tooth and allow replacement teeth to feel more natural.

  • How long do dental implants last?

    With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. They are designed to be a permanent solution for missing teeth.

  • Are dental implants better than dentures?

    Dental implants offer several advantages over traditional dentures, including improved stability, functionality, and durability. They also prevent bone loss in the jaw and provide a more natural-looking smile.

  • What are the 3 types of dental implants?

    The three main types of dental implants are:

    1. Endosteal Implants: These are the most common type of dental implant and are typically made of titanium. Endosteal implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, and once the surrounding gum tissue has healed, a post is attached to the implant. Finally, an artificial tooth or crown is securely affixed to the post.
    2. Subperiosteal Implants: Unlike endosteal implants, which are placed into the jawbone, subperiosteal implants are positioned on top of the jawbone but beneath the gum tissue. These implants consist of a metal frame that protrudes through the gum to hold the artificial tooth or crown in place. Subperiosteal implants are often used when there is insufficient bone height or density for traditional implants.
    3. All-on-4 Implants: All-on-4 implants are a type of dental implant solution for patients who have lost all or most of their teeth in one or both dental arches. With this method, only four implants are placed strategically within the jawbone to support a full arch of teeth. All-on-4 implants offer a more efficient and cost-effective solution compared to traditional implants, as they require fewer implants and can often be placed without the need for bone grafting.

    Each type of dental implant has its own advantages and considerations, and the most suitable option for you will depend on factors such as your oral health, bone density, and specific treatment goals. It’s essential to consult with a qualified dental professional to determine the best implant solution for your individual needs.
