Bite Back at Life: Understanding the 4 Most Common Types of Dental Implants with Dr. Wilde

I’m Dr. Wilde, your trusted dentist in Lauderhill, here to light up your day with some important information about dental implants. At Luxe Dental, we believe knowledge is power, and we’re committed to helping our patients understand the options available to them.

When it comes to restoring your vibrant smile, one size does not fit all. So let’s dive into the four most common types of dental implants.

1. Endosteal Implants

These are the most commonly used type in dental implantology. Shaped like small screws, they are inserted directly into your jawbone, providing a strong and sturdy base for the replacement tooth.

2. Subperiosteal Implants

Unlike endosteal implants, subperiosteal implants sit on top of the jawbone, but underneath the gum line. These are often recommended for patients who have a shallow jawbone that may not support endosteal implants.

3. Zygomatic Implants

These are the least common type since they require more complex surgical procedures. Zygomatic implants are placed in the cheekbone rather than the jawbone, usually employed when the jawbone isn’t suitable for an implant.

4. Mini Dental Implants (MDIs)

Also known as narrow or small diameter implants, MDIs are toothpick-sized implants that are less invasive and heal faster than traditional implants. They’re often used in patients who can’t undergo extensive surgery.

Each type of dental implant offers unique benefits, and the best option for you will depend on a variety of factors such as your dental health, jawbone density, and personal preferences. The most suitable dental implant is one that fits not just your mouth, but also your lifestyle!
