Let’s get to know and examine the types of dental implants together. The most commonly used implant type today is the ’screw’ shaped implants. The types of dental implants are determined according to the area where they are placed and the supporting tissues.

The 4 types of implants are as follows:

  • Subperiostal implants
  • Intramucosal inserts
  • Endosseous implants
  • Endodontic stabilizers.

The types of implants have shown a great increase in recent years. Especially with the domestic brands launched on the market, it has become more reasonable in terms of price.

The main thing that people should take into account is the use of products that are absolutely approved globally and nationally and the quality of which is assured. Only in this way will a smooth implant treatment step be completed. Your specialist will also give the necessary warnings about which product will have a more qualified result for you if it is used.

Subperiostal Implants

In Subperiostal implants, the bone is exposed by surgical operation. A measurement is taken over the exposed bone and brought to a ready state in this way. Subperiostal Implants are manufactured from thin metal alloys.

It is in the form of a cage. They are made directly on the bone under the periosteum. There are seals that come out of the gums into the mouth. These implants are placed on the alveolar bone.

They spread the chewing power to the whole bone. If they are placed on the bone, they function as a capsule with connective tissue around it. This implant is a type of dental implant that is used in patients with different much resorbed crests, where the vertical height of the crest is not suitable for placing the endostal implant.

Endosseous Implants

These implants are placed inside the bone. In this way, they act together with the bone as a structure and as a function. Endosseous implants are produced in the form of screws or cylinders.

Intramucosal implants

They are titanium structures. It is a type of implant used to increase the retention of prostheses.

Endodontic implants

It is used for fixing poorly constructed teeth.

What is implant?

Dental Implants are the closest treatment method to natural work with today’s technology. Implants provide chewing, speech functions many times better than traditional forms of bridge and prosthetic treatment. It is the most applied dental aesthetic method today.

Implants are a method that has been used for many years with an accurate diagnosis, sufficient level of knowledge and experience of the physician, and quite successful results can be obtained for both the patient and the physician.

Implants can be defined as an artificial tooth root that is placed in the jawbone and manufactured from appropriate materials in order to restore the functional tasks and aesthetic posture of lost, broken or missing teeth.

Can implant treatment be applied to everyone?

Implants are roots with screws of a certain thickness and width. Therefore, the jaw bone should be sufficient in the area where the implant will be applied, and its height and width should also be suitable for the implant. The quality of the existing bone also affects the success of implant treatment.

In addition, it is one of the conditions that the gums must be completely healthy before the implants are inserted and during the period when the implant remains in the mouth.

As long as the person’s general health condition does not constitute an obstacle to the implant, implant application can be performed. But it is done to people over the age of 18. Because bone development must be complete.
