Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular method for replacing missing teeth. In this procedure, titanium implants are surgically placed in your jawbone, and act as an anchor for naturally looking porcelain crowns, porcelain bridges and or dentures. Dental implants are not only used for individual tooth replacement, but can also be used when replacing multiple teeth with implant bridges and overdentures.
Advantages of dental implants:
-Implants are extremely natural looking
-After the implant has fused into the bone in your jaw, the implant is very stable and comfortable compared to traditional dentures.
-A dental implant can last a lifetime. Roughly 2% of all implants fail based on different factors.
Disadvantages of dental implants:
-Implants can be slightly more expensive than traditional bridges and dentures, but can be more cost effective over time, due to the lifespan of a dental implant.
-The process of haviing an implant placed and restored with a porcelain crown can take 3-4 months.
Root form implant: Root form implants are the most common type of implant where the implant is shaped like the root of a tooth.
