Dental Implants, in simple terms, are replacement tooth roots. Modern dental implants of titanium or zirconia form an intimate bond with the underlying bone. First, placing an implant fixture, likely to osseointegrate, begins the implant procedure. Later a dental prosthetic (crown) is added. 

Advantages of Dental Implants

More Aesthetic appeal.

Dental Implants are, in fact, similar to natural teeth and look the same as natural teeth. Unlike Dentures, They provide more aesthetic appeal and last longer.

It helps you eat easier.  

Usually, dentures make eating more difficult. However, dental implants behave as natural teeth and help you chew food like your natural teeth. 

Speak without worry

Poor-fitting dentures cause the teeth to slip within the mouth, making you maffle or stammer. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.

Provides comfort 

Dental implants provide functions similar to natural teeth than dentures, which need to be replaced regularly for maintenance, which creates discomfort for the person who uses the denture. In contrast, implants don’t require removal. 

Increases your self-esteem

Dental implants give back your smile and thereby increase your confidence. 

Better oral health

Since no alterations are done to nearby teeth to support the implant, size reductions of other teeth are not required, and they are left intact, which improves long-term oral health. Also, individual implants allow easier access to other teeth, drastically increasing oral hygiene. 


Dental implants are highly durable. They don’t need high maintenance like dentures. They even last a lifetime with proper care. 


Dental implants are as comfortable as regular teeth. Dentures need frequent removal to clean and tighten, which discomfort the person who uses them regularly. At the same time, dental implants require no such removal or cleaning as they provide regular teeth functions and act like one. 

Types of Dental Implants

You can choose three types of dental implants: Endosteal, subperiosteal, and zygomatic. 

Endosteal is the safest and the most common, followed by subperiosteal and zygomatic, the most complex among them.

Endosteal Implants

The most common dental implant suits most patients but requires a sound, healthy jawbone for the post to fuse.  

They are the most commonly used implants, made of titanium similar to small screws. 

Once the procedure is complete, it takes some time to heal and fuse. After curing, the doctor places the false teeth onto the post. 

D4U dental clinic has experts in implants and performs high-quality endosteal implants with high success rates. 

Subperiosteal Implants

These dental implants are placed under the gum but above the jawbone. This particular implant is done by placing a metal frame with a post under the gum. 

Patients who do not have a healthy jawbone and cannot or don’t want to undergo a bone augmentation procedure to rebuild it use this type of implant. 


These are the least common type of implants used. It involved a complex procedure, only people who don’t have a healthy jawbone use this type of implant.  

The implant is placed in the patient’s cheekbone.

Top 5 benefits of implants

Prevents Bone Loss

When you lose teeth, you also lose bone mass in your jaw. The jawbone needs the stimulation of teeth connected to it.

Dental implants are the only alternatives that provide this stimulation and help bone loss.

It matches your natural teeth.

Dental implants are clones of natural teeth and come in various shapes. Your dentist works with you to choose the right implant that matches the surrounding teeth’ color and fits in the gap. 

Restores bite force

Because the dental implants are anchored onto the jawbone with a titanium post that replaces the tooth root, you can bite with more or less the same amount of bite force you could use with your natural teeth.

No other implant mediums or methods give this freedom as they are placed on or above the gums. 

It prevents changes in the shape of your face.

Natural teeth help support your facial structure. Losing teeth cause changes in the facial structure and make you appear old. 

Dental implants provide similar support as natural teeth and prevent the facial structure from changing.

Enables natural speech

Missing teeth cause you to alter your speech, and some tooth replacements like dentures do the same. Since dental implants feel and function as natural teeth, they enable you to speak easily and naturally. 

If you need a tooth replacement option, you should consider dental implants. Schedule a consultation to find out if you’re a good candidate for dental implants.
