Know About the Types of Dental Implant with George Pegios Dental implants come up to in different sizes, heights and types. Your dental implant specialist can help you decide which option is best for you, depending on your exacting needs. George Pegios is a head of Australian Institute of Implant Dentistry. He provides all the dental implant services. A dental implant is a surgical section that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis.

Types of Implants :Endosteal: All this type of dental implants are placed in the jawbone. Typically made of titanium and shaped like small screws, they are the most commonly used type of implant.

Subperiosteal: These dental implants are placed under the gum but on, or above, the jawbone. This type of implant may be used in patients who do not have enough healthy natural jawbones and cannot, or do not want to, undergo a bone augmentation procedure to rebuild it.

3D Imaging and Treatment Planning :State-of-the-art, highly precise 3D digital imaging and implant surgical planning software have made implant procedures faster and highly predictable. Your dentist can use these tools to analyze the anatomy of your jaw and determine the best sites for implant placement before surgery. This saves time and money, and shortens recovery time.


Alternative Dental Implant Techniques :Depending on the health of your jawbone and your specific needs, your dental implant dentist may suggest some alternative treatment options in addition to the traditional multi-step dental implant procedure. Points discuss below:

Immediate Load Dental Implants Also called same day implants or Teeth in a DayÂŽ, immediate load dental implants allow placement of a temporary tooth during the same appointment as your dental implant placement. This may be a good option if you have enough natural bone and an implant secure enough to support immediate placement and pressure on the new temporary tooth.

Mini dental implants (MDIs) Also called small or narrow diameter implants, these toothpick-sized implants are narrower than most commonly used dental implants. They are placed through less-invasive techniques and are used primarily to stabilize a lower denture.

All-on-4 All-on-4 is an alternative to placing a top or bottom set of replacement teeth, called a full arch. Four dental implants are placed in available bone, avoiding the need for bone grafting. Special abutments are used so that a temporary set of replacement teeth can be placed the same day. You follow a modified diet while the gum tissues heal and the implants bond with your natural bone. After about six months, the permanent replacement teeth will be placed and you can resume a regular diet.
