Have you ever hid your smile or covered your mouth when you talk? You're not alone. According to a survey finding by the American General Dentistry (AGD), 86% of dentists said patients sought implants because of social embarrassment.
Fortunately, dental implants look and function just like your regular teeth.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth placed in the jawbone. It's fused with the bone for a strong foundation and the color is matched to your existing teeth. The implants are often cylindrical and made of titanium.
Dental implants come in two types: endosteal, which is surgically implanted directly into the jawbone and subperiosteal, which is placed on the top of the jaw with the metal frameworkâ€™s posts protruding through the gum.
Dental implant procedures have a success rate of up to 98% and with proper care can last a lifetime. They also reduce bone loss from losing a tooth and leave neighboring teeth unharmed.
Candidates for dental implants generally must have good oral health, with adequate bone in the jaw to support the implant. Patients also generally have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease or infection of the structures around the teeth.
