Type of Dental Implant Service
What are the different types of dental implants?
There are many different types of dental implants from which to choose, including:
- an artificial bone substitute
This type of implant involves a synthetic bone substitute being fitted on top of the bone to help rebuild the shrinking ridge and provide sturdy support for dentures. Because it is made of the same type of mineral found in natural bone, this type of implant bonds to the existing jaw bone.
- endosteal implants
This type of implant is inserted into the jaw bone to serve as the tooth's root.
- subperiosteal implants
This type of implant, usually an option for persons who can no longer wear conventional dentures, involves a lightweight, specially-designed, metal implant that fits directly on the existing bone.
Dental implants may either be inserted by a dentist specially training in implantology, or by an oral surgeon in a hospital.
