For those in need of implants, there are numerous facts to consider. Dental implants are replacement fixtures placed into the jawbone to hold ceramic crowns into place. There are two different types of implants. Endoseal implants are inserted directly into the jawbone, while subperioseal implants are a metal frame that rests on the jaw. Dental implants will improve your mouth’s overall appearance and help maintain the alignment of already existing, natural teeth. The cost of getting dental implants will vary depending on the patient’s choice of crowns. Although ceramic caps are commonly used, you may opt for porcelain fused to metal, which create a stronger, more permanent bond. Implants are a suitable option for patients with one or more healthy teeth in their upper or lower jaw Although they can be more expensive than dentures, implants provide a more natural looking smile and allow patients to chew with ease.
Dental implants can be installed over the course of a few short weeks. It is important to discuss with your dentist which type of implant is most suitable for you.
