Types of Dental Implants

Reset Decrease Increase
Mainly, dental implants are made of titanium.
There are several types of dental implants. Root-form implants are by far the most popular. Subperiosteal implants and mini-implants are also used.
Your dentist decides which type of implant to use based on the quality of the bone in your jaw and the type of crown, bridge or denture that will be placed on the implant.

Root-Form Implant

Root-form implants are called endosseous or endosteal implants. This means that they are placed in the bone. They look like screws and come in various widths and lengths. A metal cylinder called an abutment is attached to the implant once it's integrated into the jawbone. The abutment serves as a base for a crown, denture or bridge.
Root-form implants can be inserted in two stages or one stage.

Subperiosteal Implant

The subperiosteal implant may be used only in the lower jaw when you have no lower teeth and don't have enough bone for root-form implants. The subperiosteal implant is a custom-made metal frame that sits precisely on top of the bone, but under the gums. The frame includes metal spokes (abutments) that push through the gums into the mouth.

Mini-Implant

These small implants are usually about 2 millimeters in diameter. This is almost half the size of many traditional root-form implants. Mini-implants consist of only one piece that screws into the bone and also extend above the gum line. They are placed in the same way as larger root-form implants. Crowns are often seated over the mini-implant right away.
This type of implant can be used for small teeth, front teeth, pre-molars or missing teeth that are located in a narrow area.
