Types of Dental Implants Based on Number of Implants

Single-Tooth Implant

A single-tooth dental implant offers a permanent and natural-looking solution for replacing a missing tooth, restoring both functionality and aesthetics. Unlike traditional bridges, it doesn't rely on adjacent teeth for support, preserving the integrity of surrounding natural teeth.

Multiple-Tooth Implant

Multiple-tooth dental implants provide a comprehensive solution for individuals with several missing teeth, offering the advantages of stability, functionality, and improved aesthetics. This approach eliminates the need for removable dentures or partials, enhancing comfort and convenience.

Full-Mouth Implant

A full-mouth dental implant provides a transformative solution for individuals facing complete tooth loss, offering a permanent and natural-looking set of replacement teeth. This comprehensive approach not only restores oral function and aesthetics but also enhances overall confidence and quality of life.

Endosteal Implants

Designed in the form of a screw, cylinder, or blade, the endosteal implant is skillfully positioned within the jawbone by the implant specialist. With the capacity to support single or multiple replacement teeth, these implants are a prevalent choice. They benefit individuals already using dentures or bridges, offering a reliable and effective solution for enhanced oral function and aesthetics.

Subperiosteal Implants

Unlike traditional implants that integrate into the jawbone, subperiosteal implants are positioned above or on the jawbone. The oral surgeon places a metal post beneath the gum, protruding and securing it in position. This type of implant is often recommended for individuals who face challenges with conventional dentures or have limited jawbone structure. Additionally, subperiosteal implants offer an alternative for those who prefer to avoid bone augmentation procedures for building up the jawbone.

Zygomatic Implants

In cases where there's insufficient jawbone for an endosteal implant, your dentist may suggest a zygomatic implant. This intricate procedure involves placing the implant in the cheekbone rather than the jawbone, addressing the challenge of limited jawbone availability.
