Endosseous implants & Subperiosteal implants
The American Dental Association recommends two types of dental implant. Endosseous implants are shaped like a screw or cylinder and are placed into the jawbone. Subperiosteal implants are a metal framework that attaches to the top of your jawbone but underneath the gum tissue.
Dental implants are commonly used when people have lost one or more of their teeth and are looking for a permanent replacement option. With dental implants, you don’t have to fear your artificial teeth or dentures will slip or fall out. Ordinary bridges are required to be attached to your teeth on both sides of the space left by the missing tooth. This is an advantage of implants since your adjacent teeth aren’t altered for your new tooth or teeth placement.
No matter what kind you choose, dental implants are a long-term solution that can help protect your other teeth, prevent denture slippage, and help you regain your confidence.
