Different Types of Dental Implants

March 3rd, 2015 → 5:40 pm @

When a tooth root needs replacement, titanium dental implants are one of the safest, strongest options. Installed at your jawbone to mesh with your natural tooth’s foundation, implants can restore your teeth to optimal functionality.

The most common form of this procedure is the endosteal implant, which is usually shaped like a tiny cylinder or screw and placed in the jawbone. For patients with shallow jawbones, there’s an alternate procedure known as the subperiosteal implant, which is placed under the gum and above the jawbone. Depending on the nature of your affected teeth, a dental implant specialist will help you determine the most suitable size and shape from a range of implants, which come in regular and miniature sizes.
