Types of Teeth Implants

All types of implants offer a reliable and long-lasting solution. Depending on your particular situation, the implant dentist may recommend one of the following three main types of dental implants:

  • Endosteal Implants: These are the most common type of dental implants. The dentist will place titanium posts directly into the jawbone. Then, once the implants integrate with the bone, they provide a sturdy foundation for placing artificial teeth.

  • Subperiosteal Implants: This type works best for patients with insufficient bone density. The dentist places subperiosteal implants on or above the jawbone, beneath the gum tissue, and then secures them with a metal framework.
  • All-on-4 Implants: All-on-4 implants are an innovative solution for patients who require full arch tooth replacement. These teeth implants use four strategically placed implants to support a complete set of artificial teeth, thus providing stability and a natural-looking smile.

Tooth Replacement Process Step by Step

The dental implant process involves several stages:

      1. Initial Consultation: Our experienced implant dentist at Vaksman Dental Group will evaluate your oral health, discuss your goals, and determine if teeth implants are the best option for you.

      2. Treatment Planning: We then will develop a comprehensive treatment plan based on 3D imaging and impressions of your mouth. This step ensures precise implant placement and optimal aesthetics.

      3. Implant Placement: The titanium implants will be surgically placed into the jawbone. During the healing period, the implants will fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration.

      4. Dental Abutment: Once the implants have fully integrated, abutments, which are connector pieces, will be attached to the implants. Dental abutments serve as the support structure for the final artificial teeth.

      5. Restoration: Finally, custom-made dental crowns, bridges, or dentures will be securely attached to the abutments, completing the dental implant restoration and giving you a beautiful, functional smile.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Implants offer numerous advantages if you are looking for a reliable and permanent solution to your dental issues. At our practice, we usually recommend teeth implants because of the following benefits:

  • Restored Functionality: You will be able to eat, speak, and smile with confidence, the same as with natural teeth.

  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Dental implants not only replace missing teeth but also restore the beauty of your smile.
  • Long-term Solution: Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants have remarkable durability and can last a lifetime with proper care. 
  • Improved Oral Health: Teeth implants preserve your jawbone by stimulating bone growth and preventing bone loss, which is common with missing teeth. They also eliminate the need for adjacent teeth to be filed down, as required with dental bridges, ensuring the preservation of your natural teeth.

Besides implants, we also offer other teeth replacement options, find more information here on full mouth reconstruction and dentures.
