Different Types of Dental Implants

Different Types of Dental ImplantsIn addition to more than 40 different types of traditional or standard dental implants, there are now mini and even micro-mini implants; thus you can easily see the importance of understanding your options when talking about your specific needs. From single and multi-tooth replacements to different combinations of fixed and removable bridgework and over-dentures, the type of implant that best resolves your particular tooth replacement challenges will be selected. In fact, if you have loose dentures, implant-supported over-dentures are now considered the standard of care for patients who have lost all their teeth in one or both jaws. To understand more about your options, see the illustrations and article “Types of Implants and Restorations.”
