How is a dental implant procedure?

Do you know what is dental implant?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Over the course of several months, the bone surrounding the implant grows, holding it securely in place. Replacement teeth are then attached with a metal connector to the implant, filling in the gap.

There are two major types of dental implants:

Endosteal(in the bone)
Endosteal implants are the most common type of dental implant.
They usually resemble small screws. Endosteal implants are made from body-safe materials, such as titanium. Endosteal implants are surgically inserted deep into the jawbone where they take the place of tooth roots. One implant can be used to anchor one or several teeth.

Subperiosteal (on the bone)
This type of implant is used when there’s not enough healthy jawbone available to support an endosteal implant. Subperiosteal implants are inserted under the gum but aren’t drilled into the jawbone. They are placed above or on the bone, rather than in it.

If you have an endosteal implant, an oral surgeon will cut the gum, exposing the jawbone underneath.

Holes will be drilled deep into the bone, where the implant post will be inserted.
If you choose, a temporary, removable denture can be placed over the hole, for aesthetic purposes, until the permanent tooth can be attached to the implant.

If you have a subperiosteal implant, your jawbone won’t be drilled, and the implant post will be placed on or above the bone.
