Dental Implant is an artificial tooth root that supports the replacement tooth or a bridge. The implants provide strong foundation for the permanent or removable teeth and are root-form endosseous implants i.e they appear similar to the natural teeth. The implants used in dentistry are usually made of titanium.
Types of Dental Implants
· Endosteal Implants – Endosteal implants are the most commonly used implants. They are used as an alternative for the bridges or dentures. They are screws, cylinders or blade-like implants placed in the jawbones that can hold one or more prosthetic teeth.
· Subperiosteal – They are placed on top of the jaws and hold the prosthesis through the gums. The ideal candidates are the ones who are unable to wear conventional dentures or have minimal bone growth.
Indications for Dental Implants Surgery
· Single Tooth Replacement – the implants replace both the root as well as the lost tooth that are then covered with a crown.
· Replacement of several or all the teeth – Several teeth and even all the teeth can be replaced through implant supported bridges that replace teeth and some of the roots.
· Supporting the denture – The support or stability of partial denture or full upper or lower denture is provided by dental implantation.
· Improved aesthetic appearance of the teeth
· Improved oral health – Oral health is improved by the dental implants since the implants do not alter the nearby positioning of the teeth as occurs with a tooth-supported bridge. The implants allow easy access between teeth thus improve long term oral hygiene.
Advantages of Dental Implants
· Enhanced aesthetic appearance – The dental implants prevent bone loss since the implants integrate into the structure of the bone thereby improving the aesthetic appearance.
· Give more Durability and strength to the teeth – The implants are much stronger and durable than the restorative counterparts such as dentures or bridges.
· Implants as permanent solution to tooth loss – the implants restore the normal tooth function in the mouth that has little or no non-restorable teeth.
· Correct malocclusion when the problem is not due to bone abnormalities.
