What is Dental Implant Reconstruction?

To decide if opting for dental implant reconstruction to substitute lost teeth is the best decision, there are specific facts you need to know. This article focuses on the essential aspects of dental implant reconstruction.

What are dental implants?

Dental implant reconstruction is the surgical procedure of inserting implants into the jawbone, which will allow the installation of a bridge or other dental restorations, allowing the patient to have the complete, healthy dentition that was lost due to injuries, decay or other dental diseases.

Dental implants are tiny titanium screws that are placed into the jawbone to support an abutment that holds a prosthetic crown. Dental implants are a successful and lasting restoration for a lost tooth. The bone grows around the implant, making it firm enough to replace what used to be the tooth root. Since implants are built from titanium, they integrate well with the bone, prevent the loss of bone tissues and are resistant to decay.

Dental implants have been in use for over 20 years, and recent innovations have made the procedure much more comfortable than it used to be. Dental implant reconstruction is now minimally invasive and can be completed in multiple dental visits.

What you should know

Dental implant reconstruction has different processes, and you should be familiar with the different types.

Single stage vs. two-stage dental implants

Endosteal vs. subperiosteal implants

Mini dental implant reconstruction

This is the second choice when endosteal or subperiosteal implants are not possible. Mini dental implant reconstruction is the least invasive procedure and can still help to replace a lost tooth.

Consult your dentist about dental implant reconstruction to get expert advice on choosing the best form of treatment.
