What are dental implants?
Dental implants replace an extracted tooth with a new, prosthetic one, usually by installing a titanium root into your jaw, which bonds with the natural bone. On top of the root, we place a custom dental crown that looks like a healthy tooth and stimulates the growth of bone tissue.
What are the two most common types of dental implants?
During endosteal dental implantation, new teeth are rooted in the jawbone, providing them with strength and stability. A new titanium root is inserted into the jaw, and a custom-made crown is placed above it to replace the missing tooth.
Subperiosteal implants are a good option if the jawbone can’t support the endosteal procedure. This implant anchors the new tooth with an implant that has been placed under the soft tissue, on top of the jawbone, anchoring it securely without directly impacting the jawbone.
