Dental Implants Pineville NC

Do you have missing teeth that are affecting your oral health, jawbone structure, eating habits, and self-confidence?

Dental implants are the perfect solution to missing teeth.

They are made of titanium and are surgically placed underneath the gum line so that they can merge with the jawbone and create a solid foundation for teeth restoration surgery, making it a great service to offer at our Pineville location!

Types of Dental Implants

Types of dental implants include endosteal, subperiosteal, and zygomatic.

The most common dental implants are endosteal, while zygomatic implants are rarely used.

Endosteal Implants

Endosteal implants are the most popular dental implants requiring a healthy jawbone structure.

Placeholder posts that look like screws are inserted into the jaw so that the prosthetic teeth can be fitted in.

After the procedure, some time needs to be given to the implants to heal. They need to fuse so that a stronghold can be created.

After they have healed, the new teeth can be put into the post with the other teeth.

If you do not approve of something being inserted into your jawline, you can try the second implant on this list.

Subperiosteal Implants

Subperiosteal implants are a common alternative to endosteal implants.

However, they are different from endosteal implants because, instead of being inserted into the jawbone, they remain on top of the bone and underneath the gums.

A post is attached to a metal frame, which is then placed underneath the gums.

Some time is given for the gums to heal around the frame, after which the replacement teeth are attached to the posts.

This is a common surgery used for individuals whose jawbones are not strong enough for implants to be placed or if the patient is not comfortable with oral surgery.

Dental Implant Longevity

However, the actual duration of the implant depends on a couple of factors, including:

•  The location of the implant
•  Lifestyle and diet
•  Oral hygiene practices

Individuals who practice good oral hygiene do not have to worry about changing their dental implants any time soon. This involves brushing and flossing and visiting the dentist regularly for preventive care.
