Types of Dental Implants
· Endosteal Implants
Endosteal implants are the most commonly used implants. They are used as an alternative to the bridges or dentures. They are screws, cylinders or blade-like implants placed in the jawbones that can hold one or more prosthetic teeth.
They are placed on top of the jaws and hold the prosthesis through the gums. The ideal candidates are the ones who are unable to wear conventional dentures or have minimal bone growth.
