New dental implants have made life easier for those who have lost one or more teeth or who need dentures. Made of titanium, both Endosteal and Subperiosteal implants serve as an alternative to conventional bridges and dentures. Because they look and feel more like natural teeth they can be used to replace missing teeth to create healthy, strong and attractive smiles.
The Endosteal dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone and is used as an alternative for patients who have bridges or removable dentures. In just a few months, the implant securely attaches to the bone. This successful osseointegration makes the implant able to withstand the same biting and chewing forces as a healthy, natural tooth.
The Subperiosteal dental implant is secured on top of the jaw so that the posts protrude through the gum to hold the prosthesis. These types of implants are used for those who are unable to wear conventional dentures.
The nice thing about new dental implants is that they do not affect bordering teeth and, because they maintain bone mass, dental implants can help prevent additional tooth loss and prevent that sunken look so prevalent in those who are missing teeth. Plus, this dental option makes denture wearing both secure and comfortable.
