What are Dental Implants? How is a dental implant procedure done? What types of dental implants are there and how can you know which type suits your case best? Dental implants are manufactured structures that a dental surgeon embeds into a patient’s jawbone. A dental implant replaces a lost tooth. Using devices similar to screws, the surgeon embeds an implant into a patient’s jawbone, and it acts as a grip for the false tooth (crown). An abutment joins the false tooth with the dental implant. The crown is designed to fit the patient’s mouth and go with the color of the teeth. Crowns appear, feel, and function like natural teeth. Implants are recommended more compared to dentures, which are detachable artificial teeth. Implants feel more natural and comfortable, have a better success rate, enhance chewing, decrease the possibility of having cavities and sensitivity in nearby teeth, and finally, there is no need to take them off and clean them every night. However, not everyone can get dental implants. A patient’s jaw structure and bones in general have to be healthy in order for the dental implants to be successful as the dental implant devices should be able to bond with the jawbone.

Best Dental Implant Procedures

There are two main kinds of dental implants, Endosteal and Subperiosteal. Endosteal (within the structure of the bone): Endosteal implants are more common than Subperiosteal implants. They look like screws, and they are made of substances that are safe for the human body, like titanium. The periodontist surgically embeds the Endosteal implants into the jawbone and they act as tooth roots. Subperiosteal (on the bone): The periodontist utilizes this kind of implant when there is no sufficient sound jawbone accessible to support an endosteal implant. Unlike the Endosteal implants, the periodontist embeds the Subperiosteal implants beneath the gum (over or on the bone).

Surgery Procedure

Surgery Procedure

Dental implant procedures consist of several steps that the periodontist carries out over three to nine months. The patient might need the consultation of a few dentists with different specialties. Such as a periodontist and oral surgeon, before completion of treatment. The primary thing to do is to evaluate the patient’s teeth, gums, and jawbone. The main reason behind this initial assessment is to decide whether the patient has sufficient healthy jawbone to sustain the implant. Bone grafting can be carried out before the dental implant procedure, in case the patient’s jawbone is too soft. Moreover, the patient’s gums should be healthy and do not contain any periodontal disease. Dental implants replace a tooth or more. Therefore, the type of procedure depends on the number of teeth the patient wishes to replace. Patients do not necessarily have to go to the hospital to get dental implants. The dental surgeon can carry out the procedure at the clinic. However, the dental surgeon can apply local or general anesthesia, depending on the case. Placing the implant: if the patient undergoes an endosteal implant, the dental surgeon penetrates the patient’s gum and reveals the jawbone underneath. The dental surgeon will then make holes within the bone, where the implant should be placed. The patient can have a temporary denture to hide the hole during the healing process until the permanent tooth can be connected to the implant. However, if the patient undergoes a subperiosteal implant, the dental surgeon does not drill the jawbone but places the implant post on or above the bone. Regardless of the implant procedure type, the patient will experience swelling and discomfort once the procedure is done. The discomfort could remain for a few days. However, the majority of patients can carry on their day-to-day activities the day after the placement of the implant. The patient should take some time for the healing process, after the implant placement. The process usually needs 6 months at most. Then, the dental surgeon can add a metallic piece either during placing the dental implant or during a separate visit to join the false tooth to the dental implant. In case the dental surgeon adds this metal piece during a separate visit, the gums will need a few weeks to heal. Finally, after the healing period has passed, the periodontist takes the patient’s teeth impression to create a permanent false tooth. The patient’s teeth will seem natural. They should be taken care of by maintaining excellent oral hygiene and visiting the dentist consistently.


Types of Dental Implants and How to Know which One is Best for Your Case

Individuals with missing teeth are too embarrassed to smile or speak with confidence. They are prone to evolving bad habits when it is hard to chew food which, in most cases, leads to other health problems. Dental implants offer people a complete restoration process for missing teeth.

They do not merely act as dentures, they are a replacement of a tooth (or teeth) that act as artificial roots to guarantee the natural functionality of teeth. By replacing the roots of missing teeth, these types of dental implants give patients the stability and strength to consume the food they like, without going through any hassle while chewing.

Moreover, these types assist in bone loss prevention and supporting facial features.

What are the Different Types of Dental Implants?

Every type of dental implant has different sizes, overlay, and connector alternatives that the patient’s Prosthodontists choose from.

Although there are different techniques for positioning implants, the different types usually fall into one of the following two categories.


Types of Dental Implants

Endosteal Implants

Endosteal Implants:

Dental surgeons often use them as an alternative to a bridge or removable denture. The patient’s prosthodontist decides which type of dental implant suits the patient the best (screw, cylinder, bladed). However, Endosteal implants are secure, functional, and the most popular choice nowadays. Procedure: Endosteal implants procedure starts by the dental surgeon drilling the jawbone to position a titanium screw in the drilled hole that acts as an artificial root. Patients have to wait for almost two months before they finish their treatment. This is because the bone and tissue around the root take some time to heal. Endosteal implants deliver excellent results as they are very stable and feel natural. The drilling process and inserting of the titanium screw in the Endosteal Implant procedure requires sufficient healthy and dense jawbone. Therefore, if the patients’ jawbone is tired out due to disease or trauma, they will not have enough needed bone to support an Endosteal Implant. In such cases, a Subperiosteal Implant might be an alternative.
Subperiosteal Implants

Subperiosteal Implants:

Dental surgeons use them essentially to keep dentures steady in place in patients who do not have sufficient healthy or dense jawbone. Subperiosteal Implants are positioned on the jawbone within the gum tissue. The metal implant is exposed through the gums to hold the denture. The dental surgeon can carry out the overall process with Subperiosteal Implants during two visits to the clinic. Subperiosteal Implants have a much shorter treatment plan than Endosteal Implants.
Subperiosteal Implants provide more stability than dentures without implants, however, Endosteal Implants are more stable than Subperiosteal Implants. With Endosteal Implants, the implant goes into the jawbone, whereas with Subperiosteal Implants the implant goes on top of the jawbone within the gum tissue.

Why Patients Should Get Dental Implants – Benefits

In the majority of cases, dental implants are the best choice for patients. Although implants require dental surgery and a long healing period, this advanced treatment gives the best long-term solution for replacing lost teeth.

Let us take a look at some advantages of having dental implants:
Dental Implants Benefits

Durability

Unlike most teeth restorations that require replacement after a few years, dental implants last a lifetime. However, the crown will need replacement every 10 to 15 years.


Strength and Stability

The strength and stability that implants provide are incomparable to dentures and bridges. In other words, as soon as the implant is fully integrated and the restoration is placed, patients can use their dental implants the same way they would a natural tooth.



Appearance

The only visible part is the crown placed above the dental implant. The implant (usually made of titanium) is hidden underneath the gum.


Eating Habits

With most dentures, patients quit eating certain kinds of foods as they are painful or difficult to chew. However, with dental implants, there is no need to quit eating any kind of food no matter how hard its texture to chew.

Jawbone Preservation

Having missing teeth and leaving them untreated affects a patient’s overall health. When the majority or all of the natural teeth are missing, the body senses that the jawbone is not required to support the teeth. Consequently, the jawbone dissolves, leading to facial structure deterioration. Therefore, even when there is only one tooth missing, choosing to get an implant over other possible solutions such as bridges is the best choice.

Seamless Cleaning

Unlike bridges and dentures, implants require no special cleaning methods. Brushing them as one would do with natural teeth is sufficient. If you have one or more missing teeth, book an appointment with Levantine Dental Clinic to determine which type of implants is best for you.

dental implant prices

Dental implants’ prices depend on the implant’s type and difficulty related to gum health. In addition to examinations and the number of treatment sessions.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is a prosthesis used to replace missing teeth. Essentially, it is a small titanium post/fixture that is inserted into the jawbone, on top of which a single crown (cap), a fixed bridge,
a partial denture, or full denture can be attached. Once the implant integrates to your bone, a structure called an abutment is connected to the implant and then the artificial tooth/teeth are attached.


  • How long will implant last?

    How long will the procedures take?

    In many cases, implants can be placed, and a temporary tooth can be made at the same time as the tooth is removed. In other cases, the implants are placed and have to heal for several months
    before placing the final tooth. The dental implant procedure usually takes 3 months for the lower jaw and 6 moths for the upper jaw for the implant to fully integrate with your bone. However, everyone heals differently, so the doctor will monitor your progress closely.


    • Is the procedure painful?
    Is the procedure painful?

    No. We use local anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout the implant procedure and offer sedation dentistry to patients with dental anxiety or other concerns. You may experience
    discomfort following the procedure, but this can typically be treated with the application of ice and the use of over-thecounter pain relievers like ibuprofen.
