Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular method for replacing missing teeth. In this procedure, your Peoria IL cosmetic dentist will restore dental implants once they are placed. Dental Implants are titanium supports that are surgically fused with your jawbone. These supports act as anchors for natural-looking false teeth. Dental implants are not only used for individual tooth replacement but can also be used when replacing multiple teeth, as an alternative to dentures.
Advantages of dental implants:
Implants are extremely natural looking Fusion of the implants into your jaw make them very stable and comfortable compared to traditional dentures. They last a lifetime!
Types of implants:
- Root form implant: This is the most common type of implant where the screw is shaped like the root of a tooth.
- Plate Form Implant: A plate form implant has a flat and long shape and is better suited for a narrow jawbone.
- Subperiosteal Implants: In some cases where there is not enough bone width or height for the root form or plate form implant, a subperiosteal implant may be prescribed. This type of implant is designed to sit on top of the bone but under the gum line.
