Two main types of implant treatments are:

  • Endosteal implants are the most common option for dental implants. This procedure requires small-like screws to be implanted in the jawbones to support the new teeth.
  • Subperiosteal implants are recommended when your jawbones are shallow. This procedure is inserted underneath the gum, above, or on the jawbone.
  • The cost of dental implants differs according to the severity of the patient’s need. Your dentist can provide you with an estimate during the consultation.

>Dental Implants can help fix the gaps in your smile as well. An ideal candidate for implants should fit the requirements of good oral hygiene, healthy gums, healthy oral tissues, and good bone structure to support the metal posts. Candidates that do not have enough bone support can be less likely to receive this procedure. However, some methods help restore and rebuild the jawbones, such as bone augmentation, sinus lift, or ridge expansion. A dental implant can be a long term solution for missing teeth. They are a safe method and very successful for tooth loss treatment. They are the only dental restoration that help protects your natural jawbones.
