Dental Implant Restoration

Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular method for replacing missing teeth. Implants are surgically placed within your jaw, either upper or lower, in a relatively painless procedure.  After a healing period of 3-4 months, a post and crown are attached to the implant.
 
Advantages of dental implants
  • Implants are extremely natural looking
  • Fusion of the implants into your jaw make them very stable and comfortable compared to traditional dentures
  • They last a lifetime
 
Disadvantages of dental implants
  • Implants are a major financial investment
  • The process of getting implants can be time-consuming and requires multiple visits to the dentist
  • There is a chance the surgery fails (roughly 5% of the time)
 
Types of implants
  • Root form implant: This is the most common type of implant where the screw is shaped like the root of a tooth.
  • Plate Form Implant: A plate form implant has a flat and long shape and is better suited for a narrow jawbone.
  • Subperiosteal Implants: In some cases where there is not enough bone width or height for the root form or plate form implant, a subperiosteal implant may be prescribed. This type of implant is designed to sit on top of the bone but under the gums.
