Dental implants are frames or metal posts such as titanium posts which are implanted into the jawbone beneath the gums. In these appliances, replacement teeth are mounted. As these implants are fused to the jawbone, they give fix support to artificial teeth. For implantation, your gums should be healthy and also should have adequate bones to support dental implants.
There are mainly two types of implants:-
- Endosteal dental implants: In this case, dentists do the surgical implantation of endosteal into the jawbone. After the healing of surrounding gums, you need a second surgery to connect the metal post to the original implant and later, the artificial tooth is attached to the post.
- Subperiosteal dental implants: These implants consist of metal frames, fitted onto the jawbone just below the gum. When the gum heals, the frame gets fixed to the jawbone. Later, posts which are attached come through the gums. Finally, artificial teeth are mounted to the metal post.
