Different Types of Dental Implants

There are three main categories of dental implants. Each of the three is designed with a specific function in mind. Most dental implants are made from titanium because it's the most successful at fusing with live bone.

The first and most common variety of dental implant is the root form implant. They are closest in size and shape to a tooth root. They are most often used in deep, wide bone that offers a foundation to replace one or several teeth. The patient is put under anesthesia and once the dental implant is carefully set into place, the gums are closed with stitches. Bone grows in and around the dental implant during the healing process creating a strong support. Then the implant is exposed and an extension is attached to it. Once that is complete, the implant is ready to sustain the new tooth (or teeth).

Another type of dental implant is a plate form implant. When the jaw bone isn't wide enough for a root form implant, a plate form implant can be used. The plate form implant is flat and long so it fits into a jawbone that's too narrow for a root form implant. After anesthesia, the dentist exposes the jawbone area to be implanted and will prepare the bone to receive the implant shape. Similar to the root form implant, the plate form implant is set into place and stitches are used to close the gums.

A subperiosteal implant is the last type of implant. In some instances there just is not enough jaw bone to use a root or plate form implant. The subperiosteal implant is designed to be placed on top of the bone, but below the gums. This can be done in one of two ways, a dual surgery method or the single surgery method.

There are several advantages of having dental implants over dentures or a bridge. Dental implants both feel and look like your own teeth. Neighboring teeth are not changed or altered to support an implant. Dental implants can provide more self confidence because you can eat and speak normally.
