Getting dental implants to replace lost teeth is a standard and successful procedure. They are tiny, titanium posts surgically inserted into the jawbone to create a robust and solid basis for a prosthetic tooth or teeth. Dental implants may replace a single lost tooth, many missing teeth, or even a whole set of teeth.


There are various kinds of dental implants, including endosteal implants, the most frequent form of a dental implant. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots surgically inserted into the jawbone to replace a single lost tooth or many teeth. Subperiosteal implants, on the other hand, are positioned above the jawbone and underneath the gums. Patients with an insufficient jawbone for an endosteal implant may benefit from these alternatives.

On the other hand, mini implants are smaller than standard dental implants and are often used to support a removable denture. They are more comfortable than regular dental implants and may be inserted in the upper or lower jaw. Zygomatic implants, as opposed to dental implants, are put in the cheekbone (the zygoma) rather than the jaw.

Patients who lack sufficient jawbones to sustain a conventional dental implant may benefit from them. Overall, different kinds of dental implants are available to fit the exact requirements and preferences of each individual patient. It’s crucial to examine your choices with your dentist to identify the best kind of implant for your condition.
