The types of dental implants
There are two main types of dental implants: endosteal and subperiosteal. Endosteal implants are placed directly into the jawbone. Subperiosteal implants are placed on top of the jawbone.
Dental implants are made from titanium, a material that is compatible with the human body. Titanium is strong and durable, and it can fuse to the bone. This makes dental implants very stable and secure.
Dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. They can also be used to support a denture or bridge. Dental implants are a very popular option because they look and feel like natural teeth.
If you are considering dental implants, talk to your Stewart Family Dentistry professional about which type would be best for you.
