Have you ever imagine yourself having a missing tooth? It’s quite a nightmare, but it can happen in reality. Having missing tooth can be very challenging because it decreases self-esteem and affects daily activities like speaking, eating and chewing. Some people tend to ignore tooth loss but do these people know that it can alter a person’s physical attributes like jawbone deterioration, improper teeth positioning and even loss of facial structure? Here at Orbit Dental, we provide Dental Implants Services to help our patients replace missing tooth/teeth to restore their smile and improve appearance.
What are Dental Implants
Dental implants are posts made of titanium metal framework surgically installed in the jawbone to support the replacement for missing tooth/teeth. Dental implants aren’t anchored to other teeth. Dental Implants are stable and don’t come loose; it is simply bound to the bone and gum tissues providing durable and stable artificial teeth.

Types of Dental Implants
Dental Implants can be classified into two varieties:
- SUBPERIOSTEAL IMPLANTS
It includes titanium post fitted in the jawbone below the gum tissue. As the gum heals, the implants get fixed to the jawbone.
- ENDOSTEAL IMPLANTS
It is surgically placed into the jawbone. Endosteal implants have two surgeries: the first one is the implantation and the second procedure is the connecting of the post to the original implant. After the process, the artificial tooth/ teeth are then attached.
Though dental implants can be a great help in replacing missing tooth/teeth, not everyone can be a candidate for this procedure. The procedure requires a strong foundation of oral health specifically healthy gums and strong bone support.
