Dental implants : Ask your Cosmetic Dentist

2013 June 20

Worried about your missing teeth and need some advice and guidance? A visit to your cosmetic dentist is probably the place to start if you want to explore the options avaialable to you.

Dental implants are usually artificial titanium stubs that are fitted into an individual’s jaw onto which an artificial tooth is affixed. Dental implants are a replacement for a lost tooth which might have been lost through decay or an accident.
Implants are used for an individual tooth, mainly because they are not linked to adjacent teeth.

If you have lost your tooth, implants can prove quite effective in helping you regain your original smile. Furthermore, with the help of dental implants, you will not experience any sort of trouble with regards to biting and chewing food and other people will not be able to differentiate between the fake tooth and the original teeth.

There are basically three main types of dental implants: sub-periosteal implants, endosteal implants and false bone substitute implants. False bone substitute implants make use of calcium substitute to fit precisely over your jaw bone.

Endosteal implants are usually fixed into an individual’s jaw. Sub-periosteal implants can be considered specialised implants that are usually preferred for elderly people who cannot wear dentures. These implants are directly fixed over an individual’s jaw bone, rather than into it.

Dental implant surgery should be carried out by a suitably trained implant dentist who can work with your cosmetic dentist to help you to attain a perfect set of teeth, allowing you to get your smile back.
