Dental implants are metal frames that are surgically implanted and positioned into your jawbone underneath your gums. Roughly after2 to 3 months, the dentist places a replacement tooth onto it.
Among many of the dental services like bridge and denture, dental implant is the most recommended option to adult, as it is a permanent solution. It is quite reliable when compared to other treatment options.
It is important that before you choose a dental implant specialist, you do your homework by going through their website and referring to all the patient reviews about the services offered by them. Also, understanding various types of dental services is very important to choose the right dentist.
Why does dentist recommend dental implant to young adult?
Dental implant requires adequate bone support and healthy gums. It also requires commitment and care for safeguarding your tooth in the long run. Many of them are also not very comfortable to have ordinary bridge and denture due to gagging, poor ridges and sore spots.
The major plus point of dental implant is that no other adjacent tooth is damaged or altered to hold on to your new tooth.
Different type of implant
Endosteal implant – these are implanted directly into your jawbone. Once the surrounding gums are healed, an artificial tooth is fixed.
Blade implant – rectangular flat metal plate is place along with 2 metal prongs.
Subperiosteal implant – these metal frames are custom designed, especially to fit over your existing bone.
Transosseous implant – during olden days transosseous implant was performed on patients who were having slight bone tissue in their lower jaws. However, this implant is not at all advisable and hence, dentist now recommends endosteal implant instead.
