DENTAL IMPLANTS

Joliet, Plainfield, Cresthill, Aurora

Dental implants are fast becoming popular replacements for missing tooth/teeth, and will continue to be in trend due to their high compatibility with tissues, strength, versatility and cost, when compared to other replacement options.

There are three types of Dental Implants: 

  • Subperiosteal
  • Transosseous
  • Endosseous

Most dental implants placed today are Endosseous, and was first introduced by Dr. PI Branemark


Currently, the most popular endosseous implants are Titanium implants and work by frictional fit and cell adhesion among other factors. 


Basically, the selected titanium metal is plugged into the bone, and adheres to the bone by a process called osseointegration. The metal stabilizes with the bone after that.


After the dentist makes sure that osseointegration is successful, the implant is then restored with a crown, bridge, or in complete denture cases, as implant over dentures.
