Types of Dental Implants


Dental implants can be classified into several types based on various factors such as materials used, design, and placement method.

Some of the common types of dental implants include:

•  Endosteal Implants: These are the most commonly used type of dental implants and are surgically placed directly into the jawbone. They are designed to mimic the natural tooth root and provide a stable base for the artificial tooth.

•  Subperiosteal Implants: These are used for patients with a limited amount of jawbone and cannot undergo a bone graft. They are placed on top of the jawbone and have metal posts that extend through the gum to support the artificial tooth.

•  Zygomatic Implants: These are long dental implants used to support full-arch reconstructions in patients with the inadequate jawbone.

•  The All-on-4® Treatment Concept: This is a specific type of endosteal implant placement technique that uses only four implants to support a full arch of artificial teeth.

•  Mini Implants: These are smaller versions of endosteal implants and are often used to secure dentures. They are less invasive and can be placed in a single appointment.

Benefits of Dental Implants


Dental implants offer an excellent long-term solution to missing teeth. They provide improved oral health, better appearance and confidence, greater longevity, less discomfort, and easier maintenance.

Improved oral health is achieved by replacing the missing tooth with a permanent imitation that functions as a natural tooth, not just aesthetically. Better appearance and confidence come from having a beautiful smile that looks exactly like the patient’s original teeth.

In terms of longevity, dental implants can last for many years if properly maintained with good hygiene habits and regular check-ups. Moreover, implants cause less discomfort than other prosthetic devices thanks to their precise fitting into the gums, where it binds directly to the jawbone for greater stability. Dental implants also do not require special maintenance since brushing, flossing, and visiting a dentist regularly can keep them in great condition over time.

Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?


A candidate for dental implants is generally an adult who has lost one or more teeth due to injury, decay, or gum disease. Good candidates for dental implants should have healthy gums and adequate jawbones to support the implant.

People who use tobacco or have certain medical conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes, may not be good candidates for dental implants.
