Dental implants at Designer Smiles FL can help you eat, chew, speak, and laugh freely without discomfort or embarrassment. They are manufactured from pure titanium metal and are small enough to fit snugly under the gumline and into the jawbone.
They can be effective in replacing any type of tooth loss and look and feel just like natural teeth. Dental implants can also be personalized for every patient’s requirement and are built for high durability.
There are different types of dental implants, and reading up information on them can help you make the right choices. Our knowledgeable experts are always there to answer your queries and clarify doubts regarding dental implants and other restorations.
Dental implants can be categorized in three different types:
Endosteal Implants: These are the most commonly used implants and are suitable for most patients. They tend to fuse easily into the jawbone and resemble placeholder screws ready to support crowns and artificial teeth. Endosteal implants are surgically placed into the jawbone.
Subperiosteal Implants: If you’re not comfortable with the idea of getting implants into the jawbone, you can opt for subperiosteal implants. Unlike endosteal implants, they are placed under the gumline but on top of the jawbone.
The dental surgeon will place a metal frame with a post attached to it under your gums. This procedure is normally used for patients who do not have enough jawbone for endosteal implants.
Zygomatic Implants: This is a more complicated implant procedure where the implant is placed in the cheekbone rather than the jawbone. The dentist will normally suggest this only for certain patients who suffer from bone loss in the jaw.
(Also, for patients who do not have enough jawbone, the dentist may suggest bone augmentation or adding more bone in the jaw).
We use extremely modern dental technology, including 3D imaging and precise surgical planning, to make implant procedures comfortable and fast.
