Implant prosthesis is an artificial device that is used to replace a missing body part like a limb, tooth or heart valve. There are other kinds of implants too that deliver medication, monitor body functions or provide support to organs and tissues. Implant prosthetics are used by dentists all over the world. Dental implants are great options for people who have lost a tooth due to some kind of periodontal disease or an injury or all teeth due to old age. There are different kinds of dental implants. Endosteal implants are fixed in the bone and is commonly used. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This implant is used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures. Sub-periosteal implants are placed on top of the jaw with metal framework's posts showing through the gum to hold the prosthesis. These implants are fixed on patients who cannot wear conventional dentures. Implants can be done if a person has to replace a single tooth, several teeth or all the teeth. The success of the implant is based on the quantity and quality of bone structure where the implant has to be placed. Developing the bone for placement of dental implants can treat this problem. Deformities in the upper or lower jaw can make it difficult to place implants. But it can be corrected by lifting the gum away from the ridge to expose the bony defect. The duration for placing these implants will be over a span of a few weeks.
