Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to live the way you want to – confidently eating, smiling, laughing, talking, kissing and enjoying all of your everyday activities without worrying about your teeth. There are two main types of implants: Endosteal: These dental implants are placed in the jawbone. Typically made of titanium and shaped like small screws, they are the most commonly used type of implant. Subperiosteal: These dental implants are placed under the gum but on, or above, the jawbone.
What are Dental Implants?
Think of dental implants as artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone (A), they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns.
A connector – known as an abutment – is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns. The crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth.
Modern dental implants have been used successfully for over 30 years. They are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth – and even better, they allow these new teeth to feel, look and function naturally.
When performed by a trained and experienced dental implant dentist, dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry.
Five facts about dental implants:
- Ancient dental implants have been traced back to around 600 AD, when tooth-like pieces of shell were hammered into the jaw of a Mayan woman.
- Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth.
- In 1951, a small group of dentists who were successfully placing dental implants formed the AAID – American Academy of Implant Dentistry – to share their knowledge on the practice of implantology. AAID is the first professional organization in the world dedicated to advancing implant dentistry.
- In 1952, Swedish orthopedic surgeon P.I. Branemark discovered that titanium naturally fuses with bone, eventually switching his research focus to the mouth from the knee and hip.
- 3 million people in the United States have implants, a number that is growing by 500,000 annually.

“I was looking for a new dentist after my previous dentist retired. I was very nervous that my kids and I would not be comfortable or happy any where else. But when I meet Dr Camejo and her staff all my worries were at ease. The office is very clean and I never felt pressured into any treatment. In fact Dr Camejo explained all my options and gave me her professional opinion on what she thought was best for our family. We are very happy about our choice to make her our new dentist. Definatly recommend if you are looking for a new dentist.”
“I have been going to Westland Dental for two years. Dr. Gianna Comejo is very impressive. She is friendly, informative and very skilled! I have had a deep cleaning and two wisdom tooth extractions. Every visit I was greeted with a warm welcome from her staff, with no wait time. Extractions can be scary, but Dr. Comejo made the procedure quick and painless. She is a sweetheart, always making sure I was comfortable and educated on what she was doing. The brand new state of the art facility is beautiful and sparkling clean! I would highly recommend her services to anyone in the estero/bonita springs area.”
