Dental implants are a prosthesis that is joined with jaw bones in the replacement of missing teeth. These types of implants usually use small posts that are generally made of titanium that takes the place of a tooth root.
This form of dentistry has been around for centuries with much improvement. One of the main areas of improvement has been with the implant itself. The material that is used now helps to promote bone growth around the device and also to stop the rejection of the implant by the body altogether.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
They are a way to replace missing teeth or whole mouth replacement. They are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jaw. This serves as the tooth root much like the ones on our natural teeth.
The procedure of these implants is a multi-step process, initially, it begins with the surgical installation of the titanium post into your jaw line. The healing process should show bone growth around the posts. This gives a solid foundation for your dental attachments. The second part of the procedure is where a small connector called an abutment will be on top of the posts and this is how your replacement teeth will be attached. The last step in the process is the actual placement of the device chosen whether that be crowns, bridges, or full dentures.
Dental Implants Benefits And Advantages
Before choosing any medical treatment it is always good to look at what the advantages may be to help in the decision-making process. Here are a few of the benefits of choosing this type of dental treatment plan:
- Single tooth replacements
- Multiple tooth replacements
- Full mouth replacements
- More natural tooth look and feel
- Prevent bone loss
- Prevention of facial sagging and aging
- Overall gum health

Let us also keep in mind that when it comes to full or partial dentures these implants can be placed underneath them eliminating the requirement for adhesives.
What Are All-On-4 Implants?
