Today more than ever before it is easy to enjoy a more beautiful and attractive smile, thanks to all that technologically advanced dental implant techniques now make possible. As a matter of fact, dental implants are offered in a full range of sizes, types and heights. Your dental care provider will help you to choose which option is best for your dental needs. There are primarily two types of dental implants available today. One is known as Endosteal, which involves implants that are placed directly into the jawbone. This type of implant is produced using a very hard metal known as titanium and is shaped in the form of a small screw. This is indeed the most common type of implant available today.
Bone Augmentation Procedures
Another type of dental implant is known as Subperiosteal and is a type that is placed directly under the gum but not into the jawbone. This is a particular type of implant procedure that is used for patients that lack healthy natural jawbone mass. It is also used for those who simply do not wish to have bone augmentation procedures performed. In addition, there are other techniques that can be used for patients who do not have adequate jawbone mass. This includes everything from bone augmentation to a sinus lift as well as a rigid expansion.
State-Of-The-Art 3D Imaging and Treatment Planning
Talk with your dental care provider to understand in detail each of these procedures. Especially if you are a candidate for these procedures or someone who has limited jawbone mass. Finally, the modern technology used in association with dental implant techniques often involves state-of-the-art 3D imaging and treatment planning. This and other unique tools and resources produce the absolute best in modern dental implant procedures. At the end of the day, dental implants are incredibly reliable with a very high percentage of all procedures being successful as long as there is adequate jawbone to work with.
