If you need a tooth replaced, whether it’s due to decay that wasn’t caught until it was too late to save a tooth or a severe crack that was beyond repair, dental implants might be the perfect solution.

What is a Dental Implant?

A Dental Implant is a great way to give structure and stability to replacement teeth, bridges or crowns.  A dental implant starts with a metal post or frame that’s inserted into your jawbone, which then holds a replacement tooth in place.
They also can help provide a permanent, stable, pain-free solution for missing teeth, since they don’t require support from other teeth.  They are standalone structures, which eliminates some of the potential pain from bridges and dentures.

Two Kinds of Dental Implants

Your dentist will advise you as to which kind of dental implant you’ll need.  Endosteal implants are implanted directly into the jawbone, while subperiosteal implants are fitted onto the jawbone just under the gum tissue.  With both kinds, artificial teeth are mounted onto the posts connected to the implant.
