Types of Dental Implants
There are two types of dental implants categorized based on the kind of procedure used to place them: two-stage or single stage.
Two-Stage Implants: In this procedure, the implant is placed into the jawbone and the gum tissue is stitched. A minor surgery is done right after the surgical site is healed in order to attach an abutment. The healing period could last up to seven months.
Endosteal (Endosseous) Implants: When it comes to two-stage implant procedures, endosteals happen to be the most common type. It is used as an alternative to removable dentures or a dental bridge. The types of endosteal are screw, blade and cylinder.
Single-Stage Dental Implants: A much longer implant is fixed into the jaw in this procedure. And right after that, the gum tissue is stitched and the implant head is left visible. When the site gets healed after a few months, the temporary restoration and abutment will be attached without the involvement of a minor surgery to expose the head.
Subperiosteal Implants: This is one of the most common single-stage dental implant procedures. Subperiosteal implants are placed in the jawbone, the metal implant is post exposed in order to hold the restoration. These hold the dentures and restrain them from shifting. Threfore, its highly beneficial for people who have insufficient bone loss.
