The most commonly used dental implant is a root form. This type of implant is inserted directly into the jawbone to provide a strong and reliable foundation for restorations such as dental crowns. Burke implant dentist Dr. Pamela Marzban will recommend this type of implant under most circumstances, but it is not the best option for everyone.
Other types of dental implants offered by Dr. Marzban include:
- Plate form – narrower than endosteal (root form) implants, plate form dental implants may work better for patients with narrow jawbones
- Subperiosteal – inserted below the gum line but above the bone, these dental implants are best when there is not sufficient jawbone to support root or plate form options
The best way to learn which of these dental implants can best serve your needs is through a comprehensive evaluation with Dr. Marzban. If dental implants are not the right solution for your smile, Dr. Marzban can discuss alternatives such as dental bridges.
