Types of Dental Implants: Which One is Right for You?

Choosing the right type of dental implant is a crucial part of the diagnostic and treatment planning process for restoring your smile and dental health. At Tailored Teeth Burwood, we use high-quality Neodent endosseous implants to ensure the best results for our patients. Further, following diagnosis and treatment planning, we also work with Australia’s leading Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons for more advanced procedures. In this article, we’ll explore the different types of dental implants and help you determine which one is right for you.

Types of Dental Implants

Endosseous Implants
Endosseous implants, also known as root-form implants, are the most common type of dental implant. They are surgically placed into the jawbone and act as a root for the replacement tooth. Neodent endosseous implants are known for their high success rate and durability. These implants offer a strong foundation for prosthetic teeth, providing both stability and longevity. They are suitable for most patients and are the preferred choice for many dental professionals.

Subperiosteal Implants
Subperiosteal implants are placed under the gum but above the jawbone. They are used for patients who do not have enough healthy jawbone and cannot undergo bone augmentation procedures. This type of implant is ideal for patients with shallow jawbones who may not be candidates for traditional implants. The subperiosteal implant consists of a metal framework that sits on or above the jawbone, allowing the gums to heal over the top.

Zygomatic Implants
Zygomatic implants are a less common type and are used when there is insufficient bone in the upper jaw. These implants are anchored in the cheekbone (zygomatic bone) rather than the jawbone. Zygomatic implants are particularly useful for patients who have suffered significant bone loss in the upper jaw and are not candidates for standard implants. They provide a robust and stable foundation for dental prosthetics without the need for bone grafting.

Why Choose Neodent Endosseous Implants?
