Question by  sgriffrd (45)

Do dental implants go in bottom and upper?


Answer by  Tonybone (80)

Dental implants can be placed anywhere in the mouth. However, implant success depends on a variety of factors including location in the mouth. Assuming no other contraindication to implant treatment, the lower front is has the highest successrate because of the dense bone. The next most successful is the lower back, followed by the upper front then upper back.

Dental implants can be placed in either lower or upper teeth. They are placed for both functional and cosmetic reasons. They may be used to correct bite or relieve pain or replace a diseased tooth. They may also be placed to complete a smile or correct speech. They are placed by a specialized dentist under local anaesthetic.

Yes, dental implants can go where any tooth would be. As an adult most of the time you have 32 teeth before your wisdom teeth. Dentist will usually do implants up to 24 teeth at one time so that you will have a full set of upper and lower teeth.

Yes,implants can go in both bottom and upper jaw. Osteotomy is done and implants are screwed to the designated places. This procedure can take few to several hours.

Yes, they can go in both. However, dental implants are a lengthy process when there are several teeth to be extracted, sometimes one tooth alone can take a great period of time.

Yes. first the dentist implants the base/anchors in the jaw/gums and when they have set places the crafted or transplanted teeth onto that framework. Its not all done at once, it can be weeks or months before the teeth go in.


Answer by  Nancy (578)

The answer is yes. As long as you have enough healthy jaw bone then an implant can be inserted in either the upper or lower jaw. Dental implants significantly help to keep remaining teeth in line instead of shifting to help fill the gap left by a missing tooth whether the upper or lower jaw.


Answer by  Jackie055 (44)

It depends where the missing tooth is. If the implant is replacing an upper tooth, it will go in the upper section of your mouth. And the same for lower.

Dental implants can go into either the upper or lower row of teeth, (or both at the same time), depending on what is required.
