A dental implant is an artificial root that is placed in your jaw to replace a tooth or hold a bridge. Dental implants can be an alternative for people who have lost a tooth or several due to periodontal disease, a trauma or any other reason.

The procedure of placing dental implants requires a specialized skill and advanced technologies. First, the bone structure of the tooth is examined to determine if it is capable of supporting a dental implant. After that, the implant is placed in the bone with a specialized technique, and then beaten for several months until the bone of the tooth heals around it. This process is called “osseointegration”.

After the tooth has grown, the patient returns to the dentist to have the crown or artificial tooth fitted. The implantology procedure is very effective and can be used to replace one or more missing teeth, thus improving health, oral aesthetics, speech and eating function.

However, to be a good candidate for a dental implant, a person must have strong dental bone and a good level of oral hygiene. So, to make a decision on the dental implantology procedure, consultation with a dentist is essential.

TYPES of implants:
– Endosteal (in the bone): This is the most common type used in implantology. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with removable bridges or dentures.
– Subperiosteal (on the bone): These are placed on the jaw with screws connected to metal armor on the flesh to hold the prosthesis. These types of implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and those who have minimal bone height.
