Implant Dentistry

 

Since the advent of the implant, engineering and enhancements to the implant have enabled dentists to expand the implant's usefulness, including the replacement of missing or lost teeth. Today, dental implants techniques provide a wide range of tooth replacement solutions including:

  • Single Tooth Replacement

  • Anterior Replacement

  • Posterior Replacement

  • Full Upper Replacement

  • Types of Implants

 

There are three main types of implants:

  • The root implant

  • The plate form implant

  • The subperiosteal implant

 

Post Implant Care

 

Although proper oral hygiene is always recommended for maintaining good dental health, it is especially important when a patient has received a dental implant. Bacteria can attack sensitive areas in the mouth when teeth and gums are not properly cleaned, thus causing gums to swell and jaw bones to gradually recede. Recession of the jawbone will weaken implants and eventually make it necessary for the implant to be removed. Patients are advised to visit their dentists at least twice a year to ensure the health of their teeth and implants. Dental implants can last for decades when given proper care.
