Dental implants come in a variety of types. The most common type is the root form implant. It is a man made cylinder composed of titanium and placed in the jawbone where the natural tooth root used to be. It becomes incorporated in bone after a period of time after which posts can be attached and crowns can be placed. This allows patients to replace missing teeth without preparing their own natural teeth as in traditional bridgework procedures.
For patients with loose, uncomfortable, and ill fitting dentures, dental implants allow for the fabrication of an overdenture to be securely attached in the mouth to provide patients with the ability to eat, talk, and smile with comfort and confidence.
