Different Options in Dental Implants
Dental implants are the most common option when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Nowadays, there are several varieties to choose from. Your dentist will advise you which one is best in your particular case.
The main types of implants are:
– Endosteal implants are usually the best option for most patients.
– Subperiosteal implants use a frame on the jawbone rather than an embedded post.
– Implant-supported dentures are for patients missing most or all of their teeth.
– Mini Dental implants for people who don’t have enough bone in their jaw.
In the end, you will have a beautiful implant – an artificial tooth – that matches your natural teeth. Dental implants will last a very long time if you practice good oral hygiene.
