Types of Dental Implants

Dental implants can also be classified based on their structure:

1. One-piece implants: These are implants that have an inbuilt abutment. The abutment attaches the dental cap to the implant.

2. Two-piece implants: The abutment and implant come in a pair. The abutment has to be attached to the implant and is a separate component.

If you continuously find yourself faced with the question, Am I a good candidate for dental implants? this section is for you.

In a nutshell, the ideal candidate will be:

  • In good general and oral health.
  • Have healthy gums and jawbone.
  • Above 18 years of age. Till then, the jawbone keeps growing. In the growing years, transitional implants can be placed.

Can I Get Implants If My Bone Quality is Low?

If the bone in the area where the implant is to be placed is less bone grafting is done.

Bone grafting: Artificial bone substitute is placed four to eight months before the implant procedure. It allows the graft to heal and increase the bone quality.

Dental Implant Procedure

Step 1

Under anesthesia, a titanium implant is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth.

The healing process called Osteointegration takes 3 months for the lower jaw and 4-6 months for the upper jaw.

Step 2

After it has healed, a second surgical procedure is required to uncover the implant, remove the cover screw, and place an abutment and crown on the implant.Same Day Dental Implant
