What are dental implants?

A Sweetwater dental implant is, technically speaking, an artificial tooth root that is implanted into your jaw to support a bridge or prosthetic tooth. The majority of the time, however, when someone uses the term “dental implants,” they are referring to the fusion of the implant (the false tooth root) and the prosthetic tooth. If you would prefer not to wear dentures and have lost one or more teeth due to periodontal disease, an accident, or another reason, dental implants may be a possibility for you.

Types of Dental Implants

Endosteal (in the bone): This is the most common type of implant. It can take many different shapes, such as surgically implanted screws, cylinders, or blades in the jawbone. One or more artificial teeth are supported by each implant.This type of implant is generally an alternative for patients who are now wearing bridges or removable dentures.

Subperiosteal (on the bone): This kind of implant rests on the top of the jaw and is held in place by metal posts that protrude through the gum. Patients who are unable to wear traditional dentures and lack sufficient bone height to support an endosteal implant typically use subperiosteal implants.

Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

A Sweetwater dental implant is a good choice for you if:

Both your general and oral health are good.

Your jawbone is strong enough to sustain the implant.

Your gum tissues are in good health and free of periodontal disease.

The soft tissues (i.e., gums) and underlying hard tissues (i.e., bone) in the mouth are closely linked to dental implants. Periodontists have the ideal combination of experience and knowledge to ensure that you receive a dental implant solution that looks and feels just like your natural teeth because they have completed three years of specialised training outside of dental school to make them experts on both soft and hard tissues.
