Dental Implants are used for the treatment of severe and complex toothache conditions that cannot be effectively treated by tooth-prescribed medicines. The treatment is completed through the insertion of one or more titanium screw into a fixed tooth root through a small metal tube. After this is done the implants are filled with a material known as a post. They are then permanently fixed onto the jawbone or jaw with a dental adhesive.

A dental implant is a metal dental component which interfaces securely with the jaw’s bone or gum to support a dental appliance like a bridge, crown, denture, cheekbone or even an orthodontic appliance. It can be used to bridge a gap between two teeth, to replace lost teeth or as a prosthetic to serve as tooth substitutes for missing teeth. There are different kinds of dental implants and they include: Gingivectomy/decompression, where the upper and lower jawbones are stabilized and then the lower jawbone is grafted in place of missing teeth, this procedure takes place at the back of the head above the gum line; Inguinal Dental Implants, which are placed under the gum line, these implants are similar to dentures in that they too are fixed in place using a dental adhesive but they also include an artificial tongue so that chewing food will not cause any discomfort; Teeth Into Frame, this procedure involves fitting a fake tooth and gum tissue onto the jaw so that the teeth are literally glued into place; Fixed Implant Bridges, where dental implants are fixed directly onto the jaw bone without the aid of crowns, dentures or bridges; Dental Implants, where a single implant (the fixed implant) supports multiple appliances, including dentures, bridges and crowns. These implants are generally considered the best treatment for adults who have suffered severe and multiple toothache problems for many years.
This article will cover the details of a very common dental implants procedure called “abutment”, this procedure where an abutment or denture is fixed on top of the jaw bone is very effective as it provides a very strong support to the appliance, it is the strong support that the abutment provides that actually keeps teeth in place. The abutment is usually fixed over the top of the natural teeth and secured with the help of a bridge or crown. This kind of appliance is used for patients who have lost all their natural teeth due to decay, trauma, accident or disease. This type of appliance is the most popular form of appliance used today where in it supports not only the upper jaw but also the lower jaw.
