Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw
to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for
people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an
injury, or some other reason.

Types of dental implants:

Endosteal (in the bone): This is the most commonly used type of implant. The various types include screws, cylinders or blades surgically placed into the jawbone. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.

Subperiosteal (on the bone): These are placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework’s posts protruding through the gum to hold the prosthesis. These types of implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.
