Implants and Oral Surgery

A dental implant is a substitute tooth root, which serves the same function as that of a natural tooth root. It conserves bone and provides a secure foundation. Dental implants are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible material used in orthopedic implants.

Types of Dental Implants

Endosteal (In the bone)

Endosteal is the most common type of dental implants. Screws, cylinders or blades are surgically placed in the jaw bone. One implant may hold one or more prosthetic teeth. These types of implants are recommended for patients who have removable denture or bridges.

Subperiosteal (on the bone)

The subperiosteal implant is custom made and designed to sit on top of the bone, but under the gums.  These types of implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.

 

Advantages of Dental Implants

  • - Dental implants look like natural teeth.
  • - Dental implants are incorporated into the bone structure, they avoid bone loss and gum decline, which is common in bridge and denture.
  • - It is difficult for others to guess that you have a replacement tooth.
  • - Dental implants do not hurt adjacent teeth, like a bridge does.
  • - Facial structure is not changed at all.
  • - Success rate of dental implants is high.
  • - Care and keeping hygiene of dental implants is easy.

How to Stop Jawbone and Facial Collapse

Facial collapse is a condition where the body begins dissolving the jaw bones to use the minerals in the body after all of a person’s teeth have been extracted. Changes in our faces occur naturally as we age. But when all of your teeth are missing changes are go faster by jawbone shrinkage that leads to facial collapse. After your teeth are all extracted, the jaws begin to shrink. Your body now considers the bone in the jaws to be useless and it takes those minerals for use elsewhere. Over a period of ten or twenty years you will end up with a condition called Facial Collapse. Facial collapse occurs when the jaw no longer supports any teeth. Those experiencing this problem may appear to have a shriveled face.
