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
-Fusion of the implants into your jaw make them very stable and comfortable compared to traditional dentures.
-They can last a lifetime.
Disadvantages of dental implants:
-Implants are more expensive initially than traditional bridges and dentures, but can be more cost effective, due to the lifespan of a dental implant.
-The process of getting implants can be time consuming and requires multiple visits to the dentist.
-There is a chance the surgery fails (roughly 5% of the time).
Root form implant: Root form implants are the most common type of implant where the screw is shaped like the root of a tooth.
