Dental implants: Take the plunge or not?
Both, aesthetic and functional dental implants are for the patient, the guarantee of a comfortable life in terms of chewing and regularity in the jaws, but also of a new self-confidence, in his smile and in his interaction with others.
What are dental implants?
A dental implant is an artificial root that replaces the natural root, it is made of titanium and other materials compatible with the human body and perfectly integrated by the jaw bone. The implant has a screw shape that fits into the bone and is surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw where it serves as a solid anchor for the replacement teeth. A crown is then placed on the artificial root.
There are two main types of implants:
- Endosteal: These dental implants are placed in the jawbone. Typically made of titanium and shaped like small screws, they are the most commonly used type of implant.
- Subperiosteal: These dental implants are placed under the gum but on, or above, the jawbone.
The development and use of implants is one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past 40 years.
Dental implant placement is therefore a popular and effective way to replace one or more missing teeth and is designed to blend in with your other teeth, it is an excellent long-term option to restore your smile and regain total comfort.
Choosing the Right Dental Practitioner
The placement of dental implants is a very sensitive procedure and because of the sensitive nature of the task, it is important to ensure that the right institution is chosen to perform it.
The practitioner's experience is very important, it is better to favour a team that has experience, that has already performed this procedure and will give you the opportunity to evaluate if its previous procedures have been successful or not.
Most practitioners have websites or social networks on which patients can leave their opinions, you can analyse them, compare them or contact former patients before choosing your practitioner.

Take Care of Your Teeth Before
After a medical examination, the dentist determines whether or not he can place implants for you. Dental and gum care is provided. Oral health being very important, the mouth must be completely healthy and have no pathology when placing implants.
In case of tooth extraction, it is preferable to wait for the bone healing.

Unfortunately, the dentist may object to the placement of dental implants for people with the following conditions:
- For reasons related to the patient's health, in case of chronic diseases such as diabetes, leukemia because they can interfere with healing.
- In case of oral treatment or dental infection.
- In case of pregnancy.
- In case of insufficient bone quantity.

It is therefore important to inform us in advance of your medical condition; you can make a medical consultation before the implant placement is scheduled.
