Dental implants have gained significant popularity as a method for replacing missing teeth. This procedure involves surgically fusing titanium supports with your jawbone, serving as sturdy anchors for natural-looking prosthetic teeth. Dental implants are not limited to single-tooth replacements but can also be an excellent alternative to dentures when multiple teeth need replacement.
Advantages of Dental Implants
• Exceptionally natural appearance: Dental implants provide a remarkably realistic aesthetic result.
• Superior stability and comfort: The fusion of implants with your jawbone ensures a secure and comfortable fit, surpassing the traditional denture experience.
• Long-lasting solution: Dental implants have the potential to last a lifetime with proper care.
Types of Implants
We will guide you in determining the most suitable implant type among the following:
• Root form implant: This is the most common type, resembling the shape of a tooth root.
• Plate form implant: With a long and flat shape, this implant is suitable for narrow jawbones.
• Subperiosteal implants: In cases where there is insufficient bone width or height for root form or plate form implants, a subperiosteal implant may be recommended. It is designed to rest on top of the bone but underneath the gums.
