What is a Dental Implant?

Posted on 10/25/2021 by Martin Periodontics
What is a Dental Implant?A dental implant is surgically attached to the jaw and is below the gum to create a space for attaching the false or synthetic teeth. The Dental implant has a metal post that is screwed into the jawbone and later fuses with the bone to provide attachment and create a space for the synthetic teeth. The process of fusing the jawbone and the metal post is known as osseointegration.

Who Needs a Dental Implant?

You are a candidate for dental implants if you have missing teeth, decaying teeth, and crowded teeth. Dental implants placement allows you to maintain that perfect smile and that physical appearance. If you happen to have missing teeth or teeth then this is what you need. If your jawbone is final in the growth process then it is okay for you to have a dental implant. You are a good candidate for the implant too if the oral tissues are healthy, you will not wear or cannot wear dentures, want to improve speech, do not smoke tobacco, and if you have enough bone that can allow for some processes like bone grafting.
