What Are The Best Dental Implants?

We all know that dental implants are the metal posts, surgically placed into the jawbone, where the replacement tooth is mounted into place. But what are the types of implants?

Endosteal Implants or root form implant, the most common type of implant, this is a type of implant where screws are shaped like the root of a tooth, set directly into the jawbone under the gums. This implant is done surgically which requires the use of local anaesthesia, the healing process takes 3 to 6 months after which the tooth can be finally attached. This implant can only be done if there are enough width and depth in the jawline.

Subperiosteal Implants, this implants sit on top of the bone still below the gum and instead of a post entering the bone, it uses metal frames being fitted under the gum with a post attached to it. The gums just heal around the fixture which secures the frame allowing false teeth to be applied to the posts that protrude from the gum. This procedure is best for people whose jawbone is not sufficient to hold an endosteal implant.

Dental implants may look as good as your natural teeth but are dental implants as strong as real teeth? Well, this is a question that doesn’t have a specific answer as it just depends on a person’s dental health, bone structure and of course the strength of your natural teeth in general.

But, needless to say, your jawbone’s strength greatly contributes to the strength of your implant. Implants were made to function the same way as your real teeth although instead of regular tooth roots, your tooth is gripped by a titanium post that was implanted in your jawbone.

Your jawbone heals in and around the titanium implant, through time. This process is called osseointegration.Best dental implants in Sydney

Generally, the stability and strength of your implant greatly depend on your jawbone’s strength and it’s the ability to heal around the implant.

Also, since dental implants should not move at all unlike the natural teeth, this makes them stronger and they can withstand more pressure than your real teeth. But it’s still up to you to maintain your gums and jawbone healthy and strong.
