What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are artificially created roots for replacement teeth. They anchor an implant to the jawbone so that your new replacement teeth sit correctly. In addition to replacement teeth, they are also used for for bridges and dentures. There are two types of implants.
- Endosteal implants – You are probably most familiar with these. The implant procedures involves surgically placing an implant directly into the jawbone. This provides an anchor point for a post once the tissue is healed. The post can be used to fix a single tooth or anchor a denture or bridge.
- Subperiosteal implants – These are less common but work just as well. These work by fixing a frame between the gum and jawbone. This is useful for those with shallow jaws, and can also provide a strong anchor point for larger application pieces like bridges.
