Implants and Oral Surgery

A dental implant is a substitute tooth root, which serves the same function as that of a natural tooth root. It conserves bone and provides a secure foundation. Dental implants are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible material used in orthopedic implants.

Types of Dental Implants

Endosteal (In the bone)

Endosteal is the most common type of dental implants. Screws, cylinders or blades are surgically placed in the jaw bone. One implant may hold one or more prosthetic teeth. These types of implants are recommended for patients who have removable denture or bridges.

Subperiosteal (on the bone)

The subperiosteal implant is custom made and designed to sit on top of the bone, but under the gums.  These types of implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.

 

Advantages of Dental Implants

  • - Dental implants look like natural teeth.
  • - Dental implants are incorporated into the bone structure, they avoid bone loss and gum decline, which is common in bridge and denture.
  • - It is difficult for others to guess that you have a replacement tooth.
  • - Dental implants do not hurt adjacent teeth, like a bridge does.
  • - Facial structure is not changed at all.
  • - Success rate of dental implants is high.
  • - Care and keeping hygiene of dental implants is easy.

Treatment of Tonsil Stones

The tonsils are areas of lymphoid tissue which are located on either side of the throat. The term tonsil is most used to describe what is known in the medical community as "palatine tonsils". Tonsils, like other lymph organs function as part of the immune system and fight off infections of the pharyngeal and upper respiratory tract. Tonsils in humans occur on both the top and bottom of the throat and combine with another set of lymph tissues.
