Different Types of Dental Implants

In addition to more than 40 different types of traditional or standard dental implants, there are now mini and even micro-mini implants; thus you can easily see the importance of understanding your options when talking about your specific needs. From single and multi-tooth replacements to different combinations of fixed and removable bridgework and over-dentures, the type of implant that best resolves your particular tooth replacement challenges will be selected. In fact, if you have loose dentures, implant-supported over-dentures are now considered the standard of care for patients who have lost all their teeth in one or both jaws.
