Dental Implants are metal posts inserted surgically into the jaw bone under the gums. Once the post is in place your dentist will attach the artificial tooth to it. Implants are permanent because the titanium posts fuse to your jaw bone, making them the most reliable way of replacing missing teeth. Most people cannot use dentures or bridges due to unique complications, so implants are the best alternative. Due to the high quality of the customized building materials, your implants should last a lifetime.
Endosteal Implants: These are surgically implanted into the jawbone. Once the area around the post heals, a ceramic tooth is installed onto the post, fixing it to the jawbone.
Subperiosteal Implants: These implants consist of a metal frame that is fitted to the jaw bone just below the gum tissue. The frame will become fixed to the jaw as the gums heal over several days. Posts in the frame protrude through the gums, where artificial teeth are then attached.
Implants are one of the most common solutions to having missing teeth replaced and are vary safe and easy to install. Call today if you have any questions about our process and your options.schedule an appointment today at 561.276.6684
