Dental Implants- An Overview

Dental Implants are lightweight and flexible titanium prosthetic parts that are used to replace missing teeth. An implant is surgically fused into the jawbone to augment or support a missing tooth. Dental implants consist of a synthetic titanium screw that is fused into a pocket made from the patient’s own teeth. Once the screw is implanted, it is very stable because of its solid construction.

Dental Implants are made in a similar manufacturing process to that of a dental bridge: the dental model is prepared through an autopsy process, and then a mold is created using a casting first before it is sent to a casting agency to undergo the final processing.


There are several different types of dental implants. One type is an osseointegrated implant, which will provide patients with teeth restoration that does not require the creation of new bones. This type may need to have more than one procedure performed to make sure that the implants are strong enough to resist any future or existing bone loss. If there are significant amounts of bone loss, multiple procedures may be necessary to cover the gaps and restore the teeth. Patients may also need additional procedures if they are not eligible for the osseointegrated procedure because of certain health conditions or if their teeth are not healthy enough to receive the osseointegrated implants. The implant may need to be secured into place using burs.

Another type of dental implants is the abutment implant. This type is secured by the patient’s natural teeth, but uses a titanium post that is shaped like a traditional screw. Once the abutment is screwed into place, it is held in place by the crown. Crowns work best with implants that are strong enough to resist any future or existing bone loss. This type of implant may not be good enough for those who have severe enough bone loss due to disease or accident.

There are a few factors that will play a role in the success rate of dental implants. Factors such as the size of the implant, the amount of bone needed to support it, the oral anatomy, the success of the surgical procedure and the amount of bone needed to complete the implant procedure will have a large impact on the success rate. Factors that can increase the success rate include placing the implants too high on the head or too low. Placing them too low can lead to bone fatigue which may decrease the chance of achieving success.

If you have one missing tooth or if you have several missing teeth, you may qualify for one of the replacement procedures that are available. One of these options is dentures that are a great alternative to dental implants. Dentures allow a person to keep the same appearance that they had before they had one or several missing teeth. They also can easily be placed in a number of different places around your mouth.

If you are interested in using dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth, it is important that you get a consultation with a surgeon to discuss your options. This will allow you to find out whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedure. Although there are some risks associated with the procedure, such as infection and potential displacement of bone, most people do not experience any significant problems. If you feel that you are a good candidate for one of these procedures, it is important that you find a qualified and experienced surgeon to perform the surgery.
