What Does the Dental Implants Procedure Entail?
While endosteal and subperiosteal dental implants procedure placements are different, the surgeries are similar. The first step is for our dentist to place the metal, usually titanium, implant in your jaw, this will serve as the root for your artificial tooth. In endosteal implant procedures, the implant is placed into a healthy jawbone. In a subperiosteal dental implants procedure, our dentist places a metal framework in your jaw to replace a deteriorated jawbone. You will need time to heal and for the bone to grow around the implant to form a sturdy artificial tooth root.
Each type of implant has a small abutment that sticks out below the gumline. This is where our dentist cements the crown, giving you a sturdy new tooth once you have healed.
