Welcome to the New Image Dental Implant Center‘s dental blog. Today’s post takes a look at the different types of dental implants: endosteal and subperiosteal. The type of implant you need depends on the size and shape of your teeth and jaw.
Endosteal dental implants attach to your jaw bone with screws or plates. Subperiosteal implants avoid the jawbone and attach above the gums. While both will stay in place while you talk or eat, subperiosteal implants are a good option for patients with shallow jaws who do not want to undergo bone reshaping surgery. No matter what your circumstances are, the caring dentists at New Image Dental Implants will make sure you’re comfortable.
Patients choose dental implants over bridges because they are a more stable option. One of the biggest benefits to dental implants is that they’ll last you a lifetime if properly cared for. We recommend that you practice good oral hygiene habits and schedule regular dental checkups.
