What are dental implants?
Used to replace and restore missing teeth, dental implants are comprised of a screw and abutment. These are inserted into your jawbone and fuse into your bone to replace the foundation and support of your tooth.
What different types of dental implants are there?
Depending on the amount of jawbone you have as well as its density and strength, three different types of implants can be used. These include root form implants, plate form implants, and subperiosteal implants. Please contact us to learn more about each of these types.
