Re: Considering teeth implants - need help!!

Common Dental Implant Types

Dental implants generally fall into one of two basic categories:

Root-form titanium dental implant, are a type of endosteal implants which are placed directly into the jawbone structure and attached to this structure with nails, screws, or cones. Titanium dental implants are usually for those with minimal (or medium) tooth loss; but of course to make sure, you will have to consult a specialist. The other dental implants' types (sub-periosteal, plate-form, ramus-frame) are utilized for a multitude of artificial teeth insertion procedures.

A subperiosteal implant is usually placed over the jaw and not in it, reason why it is recommended for individuals who don't have enough bone left, and indeed there is no way to support a root form implant. A plate-form implant is a type of dental implant which consists of a metal piece with prongs on one side placed on top of the jawbone.

And finally, the ramus-frame implant, which is used for those with thin jawbones. Ramus-frame implant, are placed at the back of the mouth and along the chin. Even when they are clearly visible, are options due the superior strength and structure they can provide.
