Dental implants are tooth roots that are typically replaced with your original teeth. They can replace one, multiple, or all of your teeth. Dental implants are most patients’ preferred dental procedure because we ensure the that the implants match your natural teeth. Dental implants will give you the natural white smile that you’ve been longing for.
Location of Implants
The location of your implant can vary depending on a variety of factors. There are two locations where your dental implants can be placed. Endosteal implants are placed in the jawbone. Subperiosteal implants are placed under the gum or above the jawbone. Endosteal is the most common dental implant used on patients. These implants are used for patients who don’t have enough natural jawbone. Subperiosteal implants are also used for patients who do not wish to undergo bone augmentation to rebuilt the jawbone.
