Your oral health needs are as individual as your fingerprint, so the best dental implant is the one that fits your needs best. Your dentist's first consideration is the number of teeth you need to be replaced, followed by their location.
We also will assess your bone health with leading-edge dental imaging technology and then will discuss your options so that you may make an informed decision.
Two Types of Dental Implants in Melbourne, FL
Though all dental implants work fundamentally the same, you may receive one of two general types: an endosteal or a subperiosteal tooth implant.
The most common is the endosteal, as this is most likely a single-tooth implant. This type uses an artificial root that is more heavily threaded and then is attached to an abutment which provides an anchor point for the final restoration, usually a dental crown.
A subperiosteal implant is smaller and placed less deeply in your bone. We use this type for implant-supported bridges and also dentures. Most implants of this type do not use an abutment but have their final restoration connector built into the artificial root, which in this case is called an implant post.
The 321 Family Dental team will address your entire range of concerns so that you can receive the dental implant which works effectively, lasts the longest, and looks the best. Fill out this form to set an appointment with Dr Eley today.
